  • The Politics of Disenfranchisement: Why is it So Hard to Vote in America?by Richard K. Scher

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    We think of our American democracy as being a model for the world--and it has been. But today it compares unfavorably in some respects, especially when it comes to the universal franchise. The right to vote is more conditional and less exercised in the United States than in many other mature democracies. As became clear to all in the presidential election... more...

  • Exit Pollsby Samuel J. Best; Brian S. Krueger

    SAGE Publications 2012; US$ 188.00

  • Horses In Midstreamby Andrew E Busch

    University of Pittsburgh Press 1999; US$ 27.95

    Horses in Midstream breaks the mold of midterm election literature by focusing on the consequences of midterm elections rather than on the causes of the anti-administration pattern of those elections. The book concludes that the midterm pattern has two primary consequences: it stymies the President and provides an opportunity for the revitalization... more...

  • Will Your Vote Count? Fixing America's Broken Electoral Systemby Herma Percy

    ABC-CLIO 2009; US$ 64.00

    Voters in a democratic society should have confidence in the electoral process. Yet, as Americans have witnessed in every election since 2000, voting-the basic act of citizenship?is under assault: technologically complex, subject to manipulation, and fiercely contested on many levels. Documenting the areas of collapse in the American electoral process,... more...

  • Abkehr von Europa? (Telepolis)by Roland Benedikter

    Heise Zeitschriften Verlag 2012; US$ 3.81

    Die atlantische Partnerschaft ist in der tiefsten Krise seit ihrem Bestehen - mit negativem Ausblick. Wie auch immer die Entscheidung der amerikanischen Wähler im November ausgeht: Europa gehört zu den Verlierern der US-Präsidentschaftswahl 2012. Und daran ist wenig zu ändern, wenn man den zeithistorischen Hintergrund und die darin eingebetteten Überzeugungen... 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...

  • Voting at the Political Fault Lineby Bruce Cain; Elisabeth Gerber

    University of California Press 2002; US$ 15.95

    California's adoption of the blanket primary in 1996 presented a unique natural experiment on the impact that election rules have on politics. Billed as a measure that would increase voter participation and end ideological polarization, Proposition 198 placed California voters once again on the frontier of political reform. Employing a variety of data... more...

  • Campaign Contributions and Legislative Votingby Stacey B. Gordon

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 53.95

    This book studies the current paradox within the voting literature on campaign contributions and legislative voting behavior. Specifically, while journalists and observers believe that the contributions significantly influence congressional votes, empirical evidence compiled by political scientists has generally failed to identify a systematic linkage... more...

  • If They Only Listened to Usby Melinda Henneberger

    Simon & Schuster 2007; US$ 25.00

    Soon after the 2004 presidential election, veteran reporter Melinda Henneberger set out across the country to listen to women of all ages and occupations express their strong opinions on the major issues of our time.
