  • One United Peopleby Edward Millican

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The Federalist and the Constitution, whose cause it defended, were created amid the turmoil of political controversy. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, authors of The Federalist, were not theorists but fervent partisans in a campaign to gain acceptance -- by no means a sure thing at that time -- for the new plan of national government... more...

  • The Politics of City-County Mergerby W. E. Lyons

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Although city-county consolidation has been urged for years as a solution for many urban problems, relatively few communities have come to the point of offering such an option to the voters and in most of the communities that have done so, the voters have rejected the idea. In 1972 the voters of Lexington and Fayette County, Kentucky, approved consolidation... more...

  • Reform in the House of Commonsby Michael Jogerst

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    One of the most significant changes in the British House of Commons has been the development in 1979 of a system of select committees charged with monitoring government ministries. Unlike previous experiments in parliamentary reform, these committees are staffed exclusively with backbench MPs, who regularly review executive policies and offer recommendations.... more...

  • Senatorial Politics and Foreign Policyby Malcolm E. Jewell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Bipartisanship has become so associated with the conduct of foreign policy that partisanship has virtually been forgotten. In this persuasive study of senatorial politics, Malcolm E. Jewell reasserts the importance of partisanship, arguing that increased party responsibility is the best guarantee for the establishment of sound policy and for the continued... more...

    The modern landscape of American entertainment is filled with commentary on the state of the union.

  • Passing the Buckby Jasmine Farrier

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    In the past thirty years, Congress has dramatically changed its response to unpopular deficit spending. While the landmark Congressional Budget Act of 1974 tried to increase congressional budgeting powers, new budget processes created in the 1980s and 1990s were all explicitly designed to weaken member, majority, and institutional budgeting prerogatives.... 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...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In a time of increasing campaign costs and decreasing state political party activity, legislative party campaign committees have grown to play a major role in the politics of elections in a large number of American states.
