    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Bipartisanship has become so associated with the conduct of foreign policy that partisanship has virtually been forgotten. In this persuasive study of senatorial politics, Malcolm E.

  • Passing the Buckby Jasmine Farrier

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    In the past thirty years, Congress has dramatically changed its response to unpopular deficit spending.

    Super Tuesday 1988 was the first successful attempt to get several states in one region to hold their presidential primaries on the same day.

  • The Kentucky Legislatureby Malcolm E. Jewell; Penny M. Miller

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Twenty years ago the Kentucky General Assembly was one of the least powerful and least effective legislatures in the country, almost entirely dominated by the governor. Over the past two decades the legislature has changed -- gradually and with little public attention -- into a far more powerful, professional, and independent body. This book is a... more...

  • Laboratory for Libertyby George Edward Frakes

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This comprehensive study highlights the importance of legislative and extralegal committees in the political and institutional development of early American history, showing how the colonial experience modified a basic British institution, using it in the cause of legislative supremacy and, eventually, independence.

The task of recruiting millions of new employees of almost every skill in the midst of military and industrial drains upon manpower and the necessity of maintaining efficiency and morale jarred personnel agencies loose from peacetime routine. Both... more...

  • Social Process of Lobbying: Cooperation or Collusion?by John C. Scott

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    Despite a wealth of theorizing and research about each concept, lobbying and norms still raise a number of interesting issues. Why do lobbyists and politicians engage in cooperative behavior? How does cooperative behavior in lobbying affect policy making? If democratic participation is good, why do we view lobbying as bad? Lobbying engenders... more...
