Evaluating campaign quality : can the electoral process be improved? by Louis Sandy Maisel( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a number of years, voters and academic observers have been dissatisfied with a number of elements of American campaigns. Contemporary races are seen as too negative, too superficial, and too unfair or misleading. Based on these complaints, a variety of reform organizations have targeted millions of dollars to improve the situation. Through their efforts and those within the academic community, a wide range of reform initiatives have been undertaken, such as voluntary codes of conduct, industry self-regulation, certificate programs, tougher ethics rules for consultants, and the encouragement of more substantive venues. Candidate debates, town meetings, and issue forums have been promulgated to improve the performance of American elections." "This book seeks to evaluate whether these activities have improved the level of campaign discourse and conduct in U.S. House and Senate campaigns and argues that while individual reform efforts have achieved some of their stated objectives, the overall effect of these reform efforts has been disappointing. A different approach to campaign conduct and political discourse in American elections is clearly called for if improved campaigning is the goal."--BOOK JACKET

Trumping ethical norms : teachers, preachers, pollsters, and the media respond to Donald Trump by Louis Sandy Maisel( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions of ethics and politics have a long tradition in the classroom as well as the political world. Those who act in the political realm--including the media, political strategists and consultants, educators, and religious leaders--are in professions for which a clear code of conduct or an accepted set of ethical norms exists. By contrast, Donald J. Trump, as candidate and as President, has upended the political and ethical context in which her and others operate. This book explores emerging ethical questions that face professionals interacting with a new executive order. Some say the age of Trump is unique and that the norms of ethical professional behavior must be bent to meet this challenge. Others maintain that responding to someone like Trump is precisely why their profession has ethical norms, and that they must put their judgments on hold and respond in what has always been deemed the appropriate professional manner. Each chapter opens with an introduction setting the framework of ethical analysis for a particular profession, is followed by original contributions by notable practitioners, and concludes with a set of questions for students and other readers to ponder and discuss
