"This collection of Lipset's major essays in political sociology is in a real sense a follow-up or sequel to Political Mind and The First New Nation. It provides a broad panorama of continuing interest, developing a sociological perspective in comparative and historical analysis, with particular reference to politics, modernization, and social stratification. Robert E. Scott in The Midwest Journal of Political Science, said ""this book has an essential unity. The subjects discussed are interesting and important to the political scientists and the observations offered stimulating and significant. Both the student and the mature scholar can benefit."" Professor Lipset describes this collection of his major essays in political sociology, as ""in a real sense a follow-up or sequel to Political Man and The First New Nation. This volume provides a broad panorama of continuing interest, developing a sociological perspective in comparative and historical analysis, with particular reference to politics, modernization, and social stratification. The opening section of the book contains, in addition to a valuable new introductory chapter, essays that interpret varying levels of socioeconomic development in the United States, Canada, and Latin America. Other essays deal with such matters as the contrasting modes of modernization in Europe and Asia, the role of values and religious beliefs in the emergence of political systems, the effect of religion on American politics from the founding of the Republic to the present. A concluding section analyzes major works of political sociology in the light of contemporary ideas. Many chapters have been revised to include recent data.Seymour Martin Lipset is Munro Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology at Stanford University, and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace.

It didn't happen here : why socialism failed in the United States by Seymour Martin Lipset( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work sheds light on the chief factors that explain the failure of socialists to establish a durable party in the United States and provides greater insights into American society and politics. Drawing on rich contrasts with other industrialized countries and extensive comparisons within the United States at the state and city level, the authors eschew conventional explanations of socialism's demise to present a fuller understanding of how multiple factors - American values, political structure, and the split between the Socialist party and mainstream unions - combined to seal socialism's fate. Further chapters examine the distinctive character of American trade unions, immigration and the fragmentation of the American working class, Socialist strategies, and repression, concluding with a penetrating analysis of American political exceptionalism up to the present day."--Jacket

In this timely new study, one of our major political analysts, Seymour Martin Lipset, explores the deeply held but often inarticulated beliefs that shape America's society and thought. Is this country in the throes of a revolution from the right? Is it in decline morally? Is Japan about to replace us as the leading economic power? Why does the United States have the highest crime rate, the most persons per capita in prison? Why is our electoral turnout so low? Why are we the most open, socially mobile society and the most unequally developed nation in income distribution?

College and university faculty, together with their students, have established a reputation as being among the most liberal-left political groups in the United States. The extent to which that reputation is deserved and reasons why political liberality is so dominant on the nation's campuses are the subjects of this document. The empirical evidence comes from a national survey in which 60,000 faculty members in more than 300 institutions responded. Variations of political orientation associated with different academic disciplines, age, and religion are also described and analyzed, but the factor found to be most significant in explaining the left-liberal politics of professors is their commitment to the intellectual community. Chapters cover; (1) the politics of the intellectuals; (2) the ideology of academics: intersections of national and campus affairs; (3) academic disciplines and politics; (4) discipline and politics: the case of the social sciences; (5) class, intellectuality, and academic politics; (6) intellectuality and social background: the liberalism of Jewish academics; (7) the demography of academic politics: age and social background; (8) issues of the 1960's: the ear of campus protests; (9) persisting effects of the 1960's: the 1972 presidential election; (10) issues of the 1970's: unionism and the professoriate; and (11) conclusions.
