Epic journey : the 2008 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With President George W. Bush's approval ratings at record lows, the 2008 election was a contest that Democrats were predicted to win. And with Barack Obama's victory over John McCain, they did. But it was the highly unlikely journey to this likely destination that set this presidential election apart from others. As they have every four years since 1992, James W. Ceaser and Andrew E. Busch once again provide the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the presidential election. Joined on this book by John J. Pitney, Jr., the authors chronicle the epic journey -culminating in the election of the first African American president- of a group of extraordinary candidates and a nation
Reconstructing America : the symbol of America in modern thought by James W Ceaser( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With wit and passion, Ceaser traces the origins of the negative images of America, beginning with French scientists in the middle of the eighteenth century who viewed the country as a land of racial and physical degeneracy, and continuing with German thinkers from Hegel to Nietzsche, Spengler, and Heidegger, who viewed America as culturally inferior and a technological wasteland. Ceaser puts these critics of America in a dialogue with the country's defenders - among them Alexander Hamilton, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Leo Strauss. By revealing the sources of the hostility to America, Ceaser undermines the position of its present attackers. He contends that only if we reassert political science rather than cultural and literary criticism as the proper intellectual discipline for directing politics will we free the real America from the symbolic America and vindicate its name

James W. Ceaser argues for the continuing central role of the Founding within the study of American government.

After hope and change : the 2012 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As they have every four years since 1992, James W. Ceaser and Andrew E. Busch--joined in 2008 by John J. Pitney Jr.--once again provide the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the national election, including the presidential nomination process and election and congressional elections. As always Ceaser, Busch, and Pitney combine a concise account of the elections as well as its broader context for American politics and institutions. The 2012 election was the culmination of the most expensive campaign battle in the history of politics. President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney fought a grueling ground-war for the hearts and minds of American voters, but there was far more that went into determining the outcome of this election than two men on stage. Demographic shifts, the skyward rise of social media's political relevance and shocking developments on shores both foreign and domestic ultimately led Barack Obama back to the White House for a second term as President, leaving people around the world anxiously wondering what might lie ahead for America after hope and change."--Publisher's website
Nature and history in American political development : a debate by James W Ceaser( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this inaugural volume of the Alexis de Tocqueville Lectures, political scientist James Ceaser traces the way certain ideas, including nature, history, and religion—which he calls foundational ideas—have been understood and used by statesmen and public intellectuals over the course of American history, from the Puritans to the current day. Ceaser treats these ideas not as pure concepts of philosophy or theology, but rather as elements of political discourse that provide the ground or ultimate appeal for other political ideas, such as liberty or equality. At times, they have critically influenced the course of American political development, offering various opportunities and constraints for political leaders. Ceaser traces the histories of these ideas and their relation to other ideas, to practices, and to the fortunes of successive partisan regimes. Three critical commentators—historian Jack Rakove and political theorists Nancy Rosenblum and Rogers Smith—challenge Ceaser&s arguments in several ways. They suggest that other ideas may be considered foundational, and they prod him to clarify further how foundational ideas work politically. Ceaser responds with vigor, and the result is a spirited debate about large and enduring questions in American politics

Democracy Reconsidered provides an enlightening study of democracy in America's post-modern context. Elizabeth Kaufer Busch and Peter Augustine Lawler explore some of the foundational principles of democracy as they have been borne out in American society. The essays included in this volume examine the lessons that novelists, philosophers, and political theorists have for democratic societies as they progress towards postmodern skepticism or even disbelief in the absolute principles that form the foundation of democracies

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collective work compares US and UK conservative thought in the areas of the meaning of rights, foreign policy mission, the role of religious activism within their respective party politics, and the impact of the current economic crisis on conservative economic orthodoxy. Intended both for political scientists and the general public, it is hoped this work will add to the understanding of what constitutes conservatism, and help reveal the common strands of thought which unite them
