The Kennedy half-century : the presidency, assassination, and lasting legacy of John F. Kennedy by Larry Sabato( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John F. Kennedy died almost half a century ago--yet because of his extraordinary promise and untimely death, his star still resonates strongly. On the anniversary of his assassination, celebrated political scientist and analyst Larry J. Sabato--himself a teenager in the early 1960s and inspired by JFK and his presidency--explores the fascinating and powerful influence he has had over five decades on the media, the general public, and especially on each of his nine presidential successors. A recent Gallup poll gave JFK the highest job approval rating of any of those successors, and millions remain captivated by his one thousand days in the White House. For all of them, and for those who feel he would not be judged so highly if he hadn't died tragically in office, The Kennedy Half-Century will be particularly revealing. Sabato reexamines JFK's assassination using heretofore unseen information to which he has had unique access, then documents the extraordinary effect the assassination has had on Americans of every modern generation through the most extensive survey ever undertaken on the public's view of a historical figure. The full and fascinating results, gathered by the accomplished pollsters Peter Hart and Geoff Garin, paint a compelling portrait of the country a half-century after the epochal killing. Just as significantly, Sabato shows how JFK's presidency has strongly influenced the policies and decisions--often in surprising ways--of every president since. Among the hundreds of books devoted to JFK, The Kennedy Half-Century stands apart for its rich insight and original perspective. Anyone who reads it will appreciate in new ways the profound impact JFK's short presidency has had on our national psyche"--

The Democratic Party primary in Virginia : Tantamount to election no longer by Larry Sabato( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Virginia, as in all of the one-party South, the Democratic primary election served for decades as more than a mere nominating process. The primary was clearly "tantamount to election" since the November general election inevitably ratified the Democratic primary choice. In Virginia today, however, the Democratic primary has a position of greatly diminished importance. How this drastic change came about is the subject of this study. The origin of the primary system in Virginia and in the nation is reviewed and analyzed in some detail. The future of the primary system in Virginia is discussed in a final chapter, and considerable attention is given to a comparative evaluation of several methods of evaluation. -- From introduction
