    Brookings Institution Press 1996; US$ 19.99

    During the past decade, dozens of large cities lost population as jobs and people kept moving to the suburbs.

    Brookings Institution Press 2015; US$ 21.99

    What would the father of the Constitution think of contemporary developments in American politics and public policy?

The war is waged without adequately preparing the means to finance it or readying suitable contingency plans to contend with its unanticipated complications. The executive branch suffers from managerial confusion and in-fighting.... more...

  • Red and Blue Nation?by Pietro S. Nivola; David W. Brady

    Brookings Institution Press 2008; US$ 24.99

    A Brookings Institution Press and the Hoover Institution publication America's polarized politics are largely disconnected from mainstream public preferences.

As the 2008 presidential race kicks... more...
