Richard Nixon and the quest for a new majority by Robert Mason( )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Richard Nixon and the Quest for a New Majority, Robert Mason analyzes Nixon's response to the developing conservative climate and challenges revisionist claims about the activist nature of the Nixon administration. Mason argues that Nixon's efforts to mobilize voters in support of conservative politics and initiate a Republican era of electoral hegemony were thoughtful but flawed." "As president, Nixon was uniquely placed to craft a response to liberal malaise at the end of the 1960s and exploit this potential opportunity for a realignment of American politics. His "silent majority" speech of 1969 not only undermined the growth of the antiwar movement, Mason shows, but also identified a constituency for Nixon to cultivate in order to secure reelection. However, the implementation of this new-majority project was hindered by the resort to dirty tricks against political opponents and the ineffectual pursuit of its policy agenda. Although some Nixon initiatives were enacted, says Mason, they were not substantial enough to rival the Democratic bread-and-butter issues. Mason contends that Nixon was an activist in intent but not in deed. While he built Republican strength at the presidential level, Mason argues, Nixon did not succeed in mobilizing popular support for political conservatism in general."--Jacket

The Republican Party and American Politics from Hoover to Reagan by Robert Mason( )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During a long period of the twentieth century, stretching from the Great Depression until the Reagan years, defeat generally characterized the electoral record of the Republican party. Although Republicans sometimes secured victory in presidential contests, a majority of Americans identified with the Democratic party, not the GOP. This book investigates how Republicans tackled the problem of their party's minority status and why their efforts to boost GOP fortunes usually ended in failure. At the heart of the Republicans' minority puzzle was the profound and persistent popularity of New Deal liberalism. This puzzle was stubbornly resistant to solution. Efforts to develop a Republican version of government activism met little success. The same was true of conservative strategies that stressed a more fundamental rejection of the Democrats' arguments. Technocratic initiatives to improve party organization and communications similarly failed to facilitate an electoral breakthrough. Only the Democratic party's decline eventually created opportunities for Republican resurgence. This book is the first to offer a wide-ranging analysis of the topic, which is of central importance to any understanding of modern U.S. political history"--
The liberal consensus reconsidered : American politics and society in the postwar era by Robert Mason( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work interrogates the idea that a "liberal consensus" uniformly shaped the United States after World War II. The volume's findings indicate that political, cultural, and ideological conflict was never extinguished and that whatever liberal consensus existed was elitist and limited. These limitations included the seeds of its own destruction in the late 1960s and beyond
