  • Why Vote Green 2015by Shahrar Ali; Jenny Jones

    Biteback Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    ‘There?s absolutely no other choice but Green. The others are all the same.? DAME VIVIENNE WESTWOOD The recent groundswell of support for the Greens has made them something of a dark horse in British politics. Will the party build on Caroline Lucas?s 2010 breakthrough and convince the electorate that they will govern for more than just the environment?... 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 Anti-Masonic Party in the United Statesby William Preston Vaughn

  • 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...

  • Truman and the Democratic Partyby Sean J. Savage

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    What best defines a Democrat in the American political arena -- idealistic reformer or pragmatic politician? Harry Truman adopted both roles and in so doing defined the nature of his presidency. Truman and the Democratic Party is the first book to deal exclusively with the president's relationship with the Democratic party and his status as party... 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.

  • Populism and Politicsby Peter H. Argersinger

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This study focuses attention of the People's party which existed for a short time in the 1890s. Despite its brief existence the party and the movement that brought it into being had a lasting effect on American politics and society. Populism originally developed outside the political system because the system had proved incapable of responding to... 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 Climax of Populismby Robert F. Durden

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Rarely has a third political party in the United States exerted a force upon national events comparable to that of the Populists during the 1890s. This force reached its climax in the presidential race of 1896, when the national reforms epitomized in the cry for free silver were at issue. Yet despite a number of recent studies, confusion and error... more...

  • 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...
