  • The Tea Party Divided: The Hidden Diversity of a Maturing Movementby Heath Brown

    ABC-CLIO 2015; US$ 37.00

    Since the Tea Party exploded onto the American political scene, it has matured and changed, but the differences that now exist within the movement are largely unacknowledged. A more nuanced understanding is called for. Previous treatises have sought explanations for the rise of the movement and focused primarily on its early days. This book, in contrast,... more...

  • Race, Gender, and Class in the Tea Partyby Meghan A. Burke

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 74.99

    This book makes use of ethnographic data to enrich our understanding of the Tea Party, particularly what it was that drew people to the movement. It argues that, far from radical, the Tea Party reflects the broader realities around race, gender, and class that permeate our social and political system. more...

  • The Life of the Partiesby Ronald Rapoport; Alan I. McGlennon; John Abramowitz

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Commentators, especially since the Democratic party reforms following 1968, have expressed serious concerns about the role of party activists in the American political system. Have they become so concerned with ideological purity that they are unable to nominate strong candidates? Are activists loyal only to particular interest groups, with little... more...

  • Populism and Politicsby Peter H. Argersinger

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This study focuses attention of the People's party which existed for a short time in the 1890s. Despite its brief existence the party and the movement that brought it into being had a lasting effect on American politics and society. Populism originally developed outside the political system because the system had proved incapable of responding to... more...

  • The Climax of Populismby Robert F. Durden

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Rarely has a third political party in the United States exerted a force upon national events comparable to that of the Populists during the 1890s. This force reached its climax in the presidential race of 1896, when the national reforms epitomized in the cry for free silver were at issue. Yet despite a number of recent studies, confusion and error... more...

  • Origins of American Political Partiesby John F. Hoadley

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The first appearance of parties on the American political scene has been a subject of debate in both history and political science; most scholars have argued that parties did not develop until the nineteenth century. John F. Hoadley challenges that conclusion, arguing convincingly that substantial parties emerged within the first decade after creation... more...

  • Political Parties and Primaries in Kentuckyby Penny M. Miller; Malcolm E. Jewell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This is a study of Kentucky political parties: how they are organized and how they nominate and elect candidates. Because state politics in Kentucky is dominated by the Democratic Party, a major portion of the study is devoted to the Democratic primary candidates, campaign techniques, funding, of elections, and voting patterns. As in other slates,... more...

  • The Republican Commandby Horace Samuel Merrill; Marion Galbraith Merrill

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This powerful book reminds us of the enormous power the nation accords its political leaders and how in the significant period, 1897--1913, these leaders failed to meet their responsibilities. Their inadequacies, the authors feel, delayed the administration of justice for all citizens, neglected the Negro, and seriously impaired the future effectiveness... more...
