    Springer New York 2008; US$ 177.29

  • Not Invited to the Partyby James T. Bennett

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 26.52

    This book reveals how Democrats and Republicans have contributed to an array of laws, subsidies, and programs that have secured their lock on American politics. It considers the potential for opening the field to third-party candidacies. more...

  • The Doomsday Lobbyby James T. Bennett

    Springer New York 2010; US$ 26.52

    This provocative book traces the ways in which government has co-opted scientific research and reinforced a culture in which challengers to proscribed wisdom are frozen out. It contains stories of dramatic episodes with references to popular press and culture. more...

  • They Play, You Payby James T. Bennett

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 29.54

    Here is a fresh look at a political and economic puzzle: why do Joe and Jane Sixpack in the Bronx and Dallas pay taxes to subsidize ballparks for professional sports, despite evidence that publicly funded stadiums don't create net economic growth? more...

  • Subsidizing Cultureby James T. Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    In the American mind, state subsidization of writers and artists was long associated with monarchies and, in later years, socialist states. The support these regimes gave to intellectuals was understood to come with a cost, yet, beginning with the New Deal's Federal Writers', Art, and Theater Projects, a new policy consensus asserted that by offering... more...

  • Mandate Madnessby James T. Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 57.95

    What do drivers' licenses that function as national ID cards, nationwide standardized tests for third graders, the late unlamented 55 mile per hour speed limit, the outlawing of the eighteen-year-old beer drinker, and the disappearing mechanical lever voting machine have in common? Each is the product of an unfunded federal mandate: a concept that... more...

  • Corporate Welfareby James T. Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    From the time of Alexander Hamilton's "Report on Manufactures" through the Great Depression, American towns and cities sought to lure footloose companies by offering lavish benefits.

  • Paid Patriotism?by James T. Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 32.95

    What does a nation owe its military veterans? Gratitude, esteem, land grants, medical care, pensions, higher education? Or is serving in the armed forces of one’s country an obligation to be undertaken without any expectation of compensation? If veterans are to receive government aid, should a distinction be made between those who served in wartime... more...

  • Homeland Security Scamsby James T. Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 100.00

    A direct consequence of the War on Terror launched after the attacks of September 11, 2001 is an awareness of the need for homeland security. This war is being used to justify a huge expansion of government powers and spending, but funds allocated for homeland security are often for programs far removed from anything that might be termed defense or... more...
