Obama, Clinton, Palin : making history in election 2008 by Liette Gidlow( )

16 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Election 2008 made American history, but it was also the product of American history. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Sarah Palin smashed through some of the most enduring barriers to high political office, but their exceptional candidacies did not come out of nowhere. In these timely and accessible essays, a distinguished group of historians explores how the candidates both challenged and reinforced historic stereotypes of race and sex while echoing familiar themes in American politics and exploiting new digital technologies. Contributors include Kathryn Kish Sklar on Clinton's gender masquerade; Tiffany Ruby Patterson on the politics of black anger; Mitch Kachun on Michelle Obama and stereotypes about black women's bodies; Glenda E. Gilmore on black women's century of effort to expand political opportunities for African Americans; Tera W. Hunter on the lost legacy of Shirley Chisholm; Susan M. Hartmann on why the U.S. has not yet followed western democracies in electing a female head of state; Melanie Gustafson on Palin and the political traditions of the American West; Ronald Formisano on the populist resurgence in 2008; Paula Baker on how digital technologies threaten the secret ballot; Catherine E. Rymph on Palin's distinctive brand of political feminism; and Elisabeth I. Perry on the new look of American leadership."--Publisher's website
The big vote : gender, consumer culture, and the politics of exclusion, 1890s-1920s by Liette Gidlow( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Big Vote, historian Liette Gidlow shows that the Get-Out-the-Vote campaigns - overlooked by historians until now - were in fact part of an important transformation of political culture in the early twentieth century. Weakened political parties, ascendant consumer culture, labor unrest, Jim Crow, widespread anti-immigration sentiment, and the new woman suffrage combined to raise serious questions about the meanings of good citizenship. Gidlow recasts our understandings of the significance of the woman suffrage amendment and shows that it was important because it not only enfranchised women but also ushered in a new era of near-universal suffrage
Getting out the vote : gender and citizenship in an age of consumer culture by Liette Patricia Gidlow( )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Informed by scholarship in "new political history," political culture, women's and gender studies, consumer culture, critical theory, and political development, this thesis analyzes the national campaigns of leading GOTV groups (League of Women Voters, National Association of Manufacturers, National Civic Federation, American Legion, and Collier's magazine) and intensive, local campaigns in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Birmingham, Alabama. It finds that though the GOTV campaigns failed to improve turnout, they reveal a major transformation of political culture in the early twentieth century U.S
