Congress reconsidered by Lawrence C Dodd( Book )

74 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its first edition, Congress Reconsidered was designed to make available the best contemporary work from leading congressional scholars in a form that is both challenging and accessible to undergraduates. For almost four decades, Lawrence Dodd and Bruce Oppenheimer have delivered on this goal. With their tenth edition, this tradition continues, but with the benefit of contributing authors now able to focus on how various aspects of Congress have changed over time. Gary Jacobson not only analyzes congressional elections in the present day, but looks at changes that have occurred in electio
Learning democracy : citizen engagement and electoral choice in Nicaragua, 1990-2001 by Leslie Anderson( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historically, Nicaragua has been mired in poverty and political conflict, yet the country has become a model for the successful emergence of democracy in a developing nation. Learning Democracy tells the story of how Nicaragua overcame an authoritarian government and American interventionism by engaging in an electoral revolution that solidified its democratic self-governance. By analyzing nationwide surveys conducted during the 1990, 1996, and 2001 Nicaraguan presidential elections, Leslie E. Anderson and Lawrence C. Dodd provide insight into one of the most unexpected and intriguing recent a

Coalitions in parliamentary government by Lawrence C Dodd( )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For eighty years, students of parliamentary democracy have argued that durable cabinets require majority party government. Lawrence Dodd challenges this widely held belief and offers in its place a revisionist interpretation based on contemporary game theory. He argues for a fundamental alteration in existing conceptions of the relationship between party systems and parliamentary government. The author notes that cabinet durability depends on the coalitional status of the party or parties that form the cabinet. This status is created by the fractionalization, instability, and polarization that characterize the parliamentary party system. Cabinets of minimum winning status are likely to endure; as they depart from minimum winning status, their durability should decrease. Hypotheses derived from the author's theory arc examined against the experience of seventeen Western nations from 1918 to 1974. Making extensive use of quantitative analysis, the author compares behavioral patterns in multiparty and majority party parliaments, contrasts interwar and postwar parliaments, and examines the consistency of key behavioral patterns according to country. He concludes that a key to durable government is the minimum winning status of the cabinet, which may be attained in multiparty or majority party parliaments. Originally published in 1976. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

The Dynamics of American politics : approaches and interpretations by Lawrence C Dodd( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a comprehensive assessment of the major theoretical approaches to the study of American politics. Written by leading scholars in the field, the book's essays focus particularly on the contributions that competing macro- and microanalytic approaches make to our understanding of political change in America.The essays include systematic overviews of the patterns of constancy and change that characterize American political history as well as comparative discussions of theoretical traditions in the study of American political change. The volume concludes with four provocative essays proposing new and integrated interpretations of American politics.This is a path-breaking book that all scholars concerned with American politics will want to read and that all serious students of American politics will need to study. The Dynamics of American Politics is appropriate for graduate core seminars on American politics, undergraduate capstone courses on American politics, courses on political theory and approaches to political analysis, and rigorous lower-division courses on American politics."--Provided by publisher

Formal grammars and Markov models by John S Bridle( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of formal grammars is widely used in computer science and linguistics. Hidden Markov models are well established in automatic speech recognition. This expository memorandum sets out the links between the two areas, via stochastic grammars, and points to stochastic context-free grammars as an interesting area for practical application

Language modelling for automatic speech recognition : a review by Lawrence C Dodd( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorandum reviews recent studies and developments in methods of language modelling which are specifically relevant to automatic speech recognition (ASR). An introduction is given to the general area of language models and the ways of formalising linguistic knowledge. Various techniques for applying phonological, syntactic and semantic constraints to ASR are discussed. The review covers papers written as early as the 1970's but the emphasis is on the more recent developments and techniques which are now being used in speech research. The formal methods of applying linguistic constraints are discussed and criticised according to their suitability for the speech research work carried out at RSRE
The inside-outside algorithm : further experiments on three and four letter word spelling and implementation on an array processor by Lawrence C Dodd( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes an application of the Inside-Outside algorithm to learning rules for the spelling of English words. The initial experiments examine the effect of using prior knowledge and further experiments compare stochastic regular grammars with stochastic context-free grammars. The problems of using the Inside-Outside algorithm are discussed and an implementation on an Array Processor is described. Keywords: Great Britain. (fr)

Participatory democracy versus elitist democracy : lessons from Brazil by William R Nylen( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Nylen begins by discussing North Americans' love-hate relationship with politics and politicians, then shows how Brazilians feel the same way (as do many citizens of democracies throughout the world). He argues that this is so because contemporary democracies have increasingly trickled up and away from so-called 'average citizens'. We now live in a world of 'Elitist Democracies' essentially constructed of, by and for moneyed, well-connected and ethically-challenged elites. Fortunately, there are alternatives, and that's where Brazil offers valuable lessons. Experiments in local-level participatory democracy, put into practice in Brazil by the Workers Party show both the promise and the practical limitations of efforts to promote 'popular participation' and citizen empowerment
