Capitalist democracies have always displayed considerable diversity in their key political and economic institutions, such as the organization of economic interest groups and private enterprises, the public sector and the welfare state, as well as political parties and social movements. This book asks whether the challenges of new technologies, citizens' preferences, and growing political and economic interdependence in the 1980s and 1990s force all polities to adopt similar institutional reforms. The authors argue that established arrangements have become difficult to sustain, but that countries choose unique trajectories of reform, not a common approach. The diversity among capitalist democracies persists in a new fashion.

One of the principal challenges of historical linguistics is to explain the "causes" of language change. Any such explanation, however, must also address the actuation problem: why is it that changes occurring in a given language at a certain time cannot be reliably predicted to recur in other languages, under apparently similar conditions? The sixteen contributions to the present volume each aim to elucidate various aspects of this problem, including: What processes can be identified as the drivers of change? How central are syntax-external (phonological, lexical or contact-based) factors in triggering syntactic change? And how can all of these factors be reconciled with the actuation problem? Exploring data from a wide range of languages from both a formal and a functional perspective, this book promises to be of interest to advanced students and researchers in historical linguistics, syntax and their intersection."

This new, entirely revamped edi­tion of the immensely popular reader Awakening Minorities, pub­lished in 1970, provides a status re­port on these social groups. What has a decade meant to them? How have changes in the sociopolitical and economic environments af­fected the ways in which these groups pursue their objectives? In his new and thoughtful in­troductory essay to this second edition John Howard provides a historical context for the articles appearing in this volume. The is­sues of the 1980s are different from those of the 1960s, and for these articles to be fully under­stood they have to be placed against the broad unfolding of race issues, problems, and dilem­mas in American history. The re­cent economic situation has pro­duced an analytic framework less hospitable to public investment in meliorative programs for minority groups. The presence of large numbers of new immigrants-- Koreans, Philippines, and Indi­ans--interested in entrepreneurialindependence is contrasted with the problems of the older minority groups.

"This study examines the growth of fictional television in five major European countries. Focusing on drama and comedy, the survey analyzes the degree to which an increase in the production of fictional television and the extension of fictional television's presence into prime time has led to higher production costs and an emphasis on family-oriented programming. The implications of fictional television's increase in popularity on the television market as a whole and the competition for audiences and resources are explored."
