Political Parties & Movements

  • 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...

  • The Anti-Masonic Party in the United Statesby William Preston Vaughn

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Here, for the first time in more than eighty years, is a detailed study of political Antimasonry on the national, state, and local levels, based on a survey of existing sources. The Antimasonic party, whose avowed goal was the destruction of the Masonic Lodge and other secret societies, was the first influential third party in the United States and... more...

  • Rooseveltby Sean J. Savage

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    FDR -- the wily political opportunist glowing with charismatic charm, a leader venerated and hated with equal vigor -- such is one common notion of a president elected to an unprecedented four terms. But in this first comprehensive study of Roosevelt's leadership of the Democratic party, Sean Savage reveals a different man. He contends that, far from... 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...

  • Republicans and Laborby Robert H. Zieger

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    At no other time in American history had labor unrest been more evident than the period immediately after World War I. Robert H. Zeiger here recounts the labor problems that faced the Republican administrations of Presidents Harding and Coolidge -- massive strikes, antiracial hysteria, and the hardening of class attitudes throughout the nation --... more...

  • The Old Dominion and the New Nationby Richard R. Beeman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This comprehensive study -- an honorable mention in the 1971 Frederick Jackson Turner Award competition -- traces the emergence and development of the Republican and Federalist party organizations in Virginia and shows how the old oligarchic system based on wealth, influence, and social prestige remained strong in that state after the formation of... 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...

  • Prologue to Democracyby Lisle A. Rose

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This study of the Southern Federalists examines their contribution to the formation of the party system at the end of the eighteenth century and to the liberalization of politics in America. Despite their belief in rule by the elite and their reluctance to develop an organized party system, the Southern Federalists are shown by Lisle A. Rose to have... more...

  • The Republican Right since 1945by David W. Reinhard

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1981, a Right Wing Republican at long last resided in the White House, presiding over what may prove to be the most fundamental restructuring of American political life since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Fortunately, The Republican Right since 1945 now provides us with the necessary historical understanding of conservative Republicans.... more...

  • Free Soilby Joseph G. Rayback

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The presidential election of 1848, known as the Free Soil election, marked the emergence of antislavery sentiment as a determining political force on a national scale. In this book Joseph G. Rayback provides the first comprehensive history of the campaign and the election, documenting his analysis with contemporary letters and newspaper accounts.... more...
