The reputational premium a theory of party identification and policy reasoning by Paul M Sniderman( )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Reputational Premium presents a new theory of party identification, the central concept in the study of voting. Challenging the traditional idea that voters identify with a political party out of blind emotional attachment, this pioneering book explains why party identification in contemporary American politics enables voters to make coherent policy choices. Standard approaches to the study of policy-based voting hold that voters choose based on the policy positions of the two candidates competing for their support. This study demonstrates that candidates can get a premium
When ways of life collide : multiculturalism and its discontents in the Netherlands by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the policies of multiculturalism and the conflicts of values they generate between native Dutch and Muslim immigrant communities in the Netherlands. The authors adopt an empirical analytical approach in their treatment of the apparently vexing issue of multiculturalism in Dutch society, using the case of the Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh brutally murdered on a busy Amsterdam street in 2004 by a Dutch Moroccan offended by van Gogh's controversial film about Muslim suppression of women. The central thrust of their argument is that policies that were designed to protect the distinct way of life of the Muslims and promote tolerance are paradoxically breeding intolerance on both sides

Prejudice, politics, and the American dilemma by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has been half a century since the publication of An American Dilemma, Gunnar Myrdal's seminal work on race in America. The cleavage between the politics of race a half century ago and now is that race has become a greater dilemma than ever before. The choice is no longer between right and wrong, between the values of the American creed and a variety of irrational and self-serving beliefs. The choice now must be made among competing values, including compassion, the freedom to achieve, tolerance, the right to be judged on one's individual merits, the reach of the state, and the autonomy of the family - in a word, between the very values that have made up the American creed. This book is an attempt to contribute to a fresh understanding of prejudice, politics, and the American dilemma. It presents new lines of questions by deliberately interweaving two perspectives, the first taking up issues of race focusing on whites, the second on blacks. But viewed from either perspective, the objective is to view anew the issues of race as they are now, not as they were a generation or so ago. The contributors are drawn from several disciplines in the social sciences, and include sociologists, psychometricians, social and personality psychologists, demographers, and political scientists of several persuasions. The range of subjects covered in the book is similarly wide, including the use of group stereotypes by college students, the behavioral assessment of tolerance, cohort trends in stereotypes of blacks, the use by blacks of stereotypes, explanations of inequality, the constraints on the reactions of blacks to middle-class American values, and the bases of American thinking about racial policies
Personality and democratic politics by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
6 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Draws on research in social psychology, political science and other disciplines to explore connections between personality, political beliefs, and political leadership
A question of loyalty by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
8 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Studies in public opinion : attitudes, nonattitudes, measurement error, and change ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In democratic societies, opinion polls play a vital role. But it has been demonstrated that many people do not have an opinion about major issues - the "nonattitudes" problem. Also, the framing of questions in different ways can generate very different estimates of public opinion - the "framing" effect. Both dilemmas raise questions about the competence of ordinary citizens to play the role a democratic society ostensibly expects of them. Although the impact of some factors is well established, particularly political information and sophistication, much is yet to be understood
The outsider : prejudice and politics in Italy by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The study of prejudice has been stimulated, but also limited, by the development of competing partial theories. Prejudice and group conflict are said to be rooted in the psychological makeup of individuals, or alternatively, to spring from real competition over material goods or social status, or yet again, to follow in the wake of a quest for identity. But the principal proponents of each theory have insisted that just so far as their approach is right, then at least one of the others must be wrong, or at most of marginal importance. It is the distinctive effort of The Outsider to develop a unified theory of prejudice integrating personality, realistic conflict, and social identity approaches."--Jacket
Facing the challenge of democracy : explorations in the analysis of public opinion and political participation ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Citizens are political simpletons--that is only a modest exaggeration of a common characterization of voters. Certainly, there is no shortage of evidence of citizens' limited political knowledge, even about matters of the highest importance, along with inconsistencies in their thinking, some glaring by any standard. But this picture of citizens all too often approaches caricature. Paul Sniderman and Benjamin Highton bring together leading political scientists who offer new insights into the political thinking of the public, the causes of party polarization, the motivations for political partic
Paradoxes of liberal democracy : Islam, Western Europe, and the Danish cartoon crisis by Paul M Sniderman( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2005, twelve cartoons mocking the prophet Mohammed appeared in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, igniting a political firestorm over demands by some Muslims that the claims of their religious faith take precedence over freedom of expression. Given the explosive reaction from Middle Eastern governments, Muslim clerics, and some Danish politicians, the stage was set for a backlash against Muslims in Denmark. But no such backlash occurred. Paradoxes of Liberal Democracy shows how the majority of ordinary Danish citizens provided a solid wall of support for the rights

As French as everyone else? a survey of French citizens of Maghrebin, African, and Turkish origin by Sylvain Brouard( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
France is often depicted as the model of assimilationist or republican integration in the international literature on immigration. However, rarely have surveys drilled down to provide individual responses from a double representative sample. In As French as Everyone Else?, Sylvain Brouard and Vincent Tiberj provide a comprehensive assessment of the state of integration in France and challenge the usual crisis of integration by systematically comparing the "new French" immigrants, as well as their children and grandchildren born in France, with a sample of the French general populatio
