  • Voting Hopes or Fears?by Keith Reeves

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 29.99

    Through experimental studies, this book provides fresh empirical evidence that the issue of race still pervades the consciousness of American society and prevents blacks from winning elections in districts where whites comprise a majority of the electorate. more...

  • Sideshow: dumbing down democracyby Lindsay Tanner

    Scribe Publications 2012; US$ 16.99

    ‘After spending much of my life dedicated to the serious craft of politics, I have to admit that I am distressed by what it is becoming. Under siege from commercial pressures and technological innovation, the media are retreating into an entertainment frame that has little tolerance for complex social and economic issues.
