The politics of resentment : rural consciousness in Wisconsin and the rise of Scott Walker by Katherine J Cramer( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the election of Scott Walker, Wisconsin has been seen as ground zero for debates about the appropriate role of government in the wake of the Great Recession. In a time of rising inequality, Walker not only survived a bitterly contested recall that brought thousands of protesters to Capitol Square, he was subsequently reelected. How could this happen? How is it that the very people who stand to benefit from strong government services not only vote against the candidates who support those services but are vehemently against the very idea of big government? With The Politics of Resentment, Katherine J. Cramer uncovers an oft-overlooked piece of the puzzle: rural political consciousness and the resentment of the "liberal elite." Rural voters are distrustful that politicians will respect the distinct values of their communities and allocate a fair share of resources. What can look like disagreements about basic political principles are therefore actually rooted in something even more fundamental: who we are as people and how closely a candidate's social identity matches our own. Using Scott Walker and Wisconsin's prominent and protracted debate about the appropriate role of government, Cramer illuminates the contours of rural consciousness, showing how place-based identities profoundly influence how people understand politics, regardless of whether urban politicians and their supporters really do shortchange or look down on those living in the country. The Politics of Resentment shows that rural resentment--no less than partisanship, race, or class--plays a major role in dividing America against itself"--Publisher's description
Talking about race : community dialogues and the politics of difference by Katherine J Cramer( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a perennial question: how should Americans deal with racial and ethnic diversity? More than 400 communities across the country have attempted to answer it by organizing discussions among diverse volunteers in an attempt to improve race relations. In Talking about Race, Katherine Cramer Walsh takes an eye-opening look at this strategy to reveal the reasons behind the method and the effects it has in the cities and towns that undertake it. With extensive observations of community dialogues, interviews with the discussants, and sophisticated analysis of national data, Walsh shows that while
Talking about politics : informal groups and social identity in American life by Katherine J Cramer( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether at parties, around the dinner table, or at the office, people talk about politics all the time. Yet while such conversations are a common part of everyday life, political scientists know very little about how they actually work. In Talking about Politics, Katherine Cramer Walsh provides an innovative, intimate study of how ordinary people use informal group discussions to make sense of politics. Walsh examines how people rely on social identities-their ideas of who ""we"" are-to come to terms with current events. In Talking about Politics, she shows how political co

The Distance from Public Institutions of Higher Education: PublicPerceptions of Uw-Madison. Wiscape Working Paper by Katherine J Cramer( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public opinion matters for the administration of public higher education. Yet, we know little about how members of the public conceptualize these institutions in general, and UW-Madison in particular. This study investigates how Wisconsinites think about UWMadison through investigations of conversations regularly occurring among 36 groups sampled from 27 communities statewide. It reveals a pervasive sense of distance from UW-Madison that is part of a broader sense of disconnection from institutions of authority. The implication is that positive relationships between UW-Madison and the mass public will require innovative means of listening and relationship building. Appended are: (1) Descriptions of Groups Observed and Municipalities In Which They Met; and (2) Listening Investigations Protocol. (Contains 13 endnotes.)
