  • Ambition in Americaby Jeffrey A. Becker

    The University Press of Kentucky 2014; US$ 50.00

    Most Americans admire the determination and drive of artists, athletes, and CEOs, but they seem to despise similar ambition in their elected officials.

Because not all citizens have a... more...

  • Talking Politics?by Sheila Suess Kennedy

    Georgetown University Press 2014; US$ 4.95

    Honest, objective, and informed political debates are all too rare in today?s polarized and partisan climate.

Super-heated and hyper-partisan... more...

  • Click On Democracyby Grant Reeher; Steve Davis; Larry Elin

    Westview Press 2009; US$ 29.99

    Click on Democracy examines the first national election in which the Internet played a major role. The contributors argue that the Internet's most profound political impact on Election 2000 has largely been missed or underestimated. The reason: the difference it made was more social than electoral, more about building political communities than... more...

  • American Exceptionalism and the Remains of Raceby Edmund Fong

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    In contemporary American political culture, claims of American exceptionalism and anxieties over its prospects have resurged as an overarching theme in national political discourse. Yet never very far from such debates lie animating fears associated with race. Fears about the loss of national unity and trust often draw attention to looming changes... more...

  • Democracy, Participation and Contestationby Emmanuelle Avril; Johann N Neem

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The establishment of democracy on both sides of the Atlantic has not been a smooth evolution towards an idealized presumed endpoint. Far from it, democratization has been marked by setbacks and victories, a process often referred to as ?contested democracy?. In view of recent mobilizations such as the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement, in which... more...

  • City of Rivalsby Jason Grumet; Bob Senator Dole; Tom Senator Daschle

    Lyons Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    Forty years ago the Watergate scandal deeply wounded Americans? faith in government. Since then, good-government reformers and big-government opponents have been on a shared mission to make everything transparent. The problem is that too much light is scaring Congressmen away from making the tough choices necessary to govern in the national interest.... more...

  • Fixing Electionsby Steven Hill

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 36.95

    Fixing Elections shows our whole 18th-century Winner Take All political system, including the way we elect our legislatures.

  • Democracy in Americaby Alexis De Tocqueville; Joseph Epstein

    Random House Publishing Group 2004; US$ 7.99

    From America's call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America --first published in 1835--enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government and character. Philosopher John Stuart Mill called it "among the most remarkable productions of our time." Woodrow Wilson wrote that de Tocqueville's... more...

  • The Good Fightby Ralph Nader

    HarperCollins 2004; US$ 12.99

    The man who shook up American politics in 2000 -- and is doingso again in 2004 -- returns to hold both parties' feet to the fire with his straight talk about Bush, corporate government, and the whole political charade. Ralph Nader -- relentless activist, brilliant visionary -- may also be the most honest man we've got left in politics. And yet from... more...
