    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This is a study of Kentucky political parties: how they are organized and how they nominate and elect candidates.

  • Divide and Dissentby John Ed Pearce

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Few men have been more important to the life of Kentucky than three of those who governed it between 1930 and 1963 -- Albert B. Chandler, Earle C. Clements, and Bert T. Combs. While reams of newspaper copy have been written about them, the historical record offers little to mark their roles in the drama of Kentucky and the nation. In this authoritative... more...

    During the 1950s two Senate investigations, both highly publicized through the new medium of television, revealed the spread of racketeers and corruption among labor unions. Taking advantage of these sensational revelations, business interests, who for years had chafed against the federal government's pro-labor policies, mounted a campaign to curb... more...

  • The End of the NHSby Allyson Pollock

    Verso Books 2015; US$ 29.95

    In 2010, weeks after the election, the Coalition government started to dismantle the National Health Service, in an ideological assault disguised as austerity.

  • Mad Men and Bad Menby Sam Delaney

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 14.57

    From the moment Margaret Thatcher met the Saatchi brothers, elections campaigns would never be the same again. Suddenly, every aspiring PM wanted a fast-talking, sharp-thinking ad man on their team to help dazzle voters. But what were the consequences of their fixation with the snappy and simplistic? Sam Delaney embarks on a journey to... more...

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    Americans today face no shortage of threats to their financial well-being, such as job and retirement insecurity, health care costs, and spiraling college tuition. While one might expect that these concerns would motivate people to become more politically engaged on the issues, this often doesn?t happen, and the resulting inaction carries consequences... more...

    Ohio University Press 2015; US$ 13.99

    The Soweto uprising was a true turning point in South Africa?s history. Even to contemporaries, it seemed to mark the beginning of the end of apartheid.

    Temple University Press 2015; US$ 27.95

    As the Baby Boomer generation ages, the number of senior citizens as a proportion of the overall electorate is going to reach record numbers.
