Revolving gridlock : politics and policy from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush by David W Brady( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fully revised edition, political scientists David W. Brady and Craig Volden demonstrate that government gridlock is not a product of divided government, party politics, or any of the usual scapegoats. It is, instead, an instrumental part of American government - built into our institutions and sustained by leaders acting rationally not only to achieve set goals but to thwart foolish inadvertencies. Looking at key legislative issues from the divided government under Ronald Reagan, through Clinton's Democratic government, to complete unified Republican control under George W. Bush, the authors clearly and carefully analyze important crux points in lawmaking: the swing votes, the veto, the filibuster, and the rise of tough budget politics. They show that when it comes to government gridlock, it doesn't matter who's in the White House or who's in control of Congress. Political gridlock is as American as apple pie, and its results may ultimately be as sweet in ensuring stability and democracy."--Jacket
Leadership and growth( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reviews Nigeria's growth performance and its impact on the labor market and proposes a growth strategy aimed at further accelerating growth and enhancing the growth elasticity of employment. The growth strategy rests on three pillars: Targeted interventions to address binding constraints in value chains with high growth and employment potential. These binding constraints include poor physical infrastructure and investment climate, lack of access to finance, pervasive skills gaps, and restrictive trade policies. Successful interventions in these value chains need to be designed based on an assessment of what is most relevant, feasible, cost-effective and provides the greatest near and medium-term benefits. To be effective, these interventions should emanate from a dialogue with the private sector and allow for swift correction and suitable governance arrangements. Comprehensive reform of the technical and vocational education system: This will be needed not only to create conditions for more rapid growth, but also to combat youth unemployment. Private sector-led approaches to improved vocational training, where the government plays the role of standardizing curricula and accrediting programs, are the most promising route for reform. Trade policy reform. Import bans and high tariff barriers substantially increase the cost of doing business in value chains with high employment potential. Further trade liberalization will be essential to allow a restructuring of the economy towards sectors where Nigeria is globally competitive

Critical elections and congressional policy making by David W Brady( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As early as 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville found the House of Representatives 'remarkable for its vulgarity and its poverty of talent'. In 1925, House Speaker Nicholas Longworth said, 'we [the House] were unpopular when Lincoln was a Congressman. We were unpopular even when John Quincy Adams was a Congressman. We were unpopular even when Henry Clay was a Congressman. We have always been unpopular'. One of the major causes of the House's unpopularity throughout the years has been its inability to legislate broad public policies. Yet for all the criticism directed at the House, we know that at certain critical points it has legislated major, long-lasting public policy changes. This book examines the House during three such periods of policy innovations: the Civil War, the 1890's, and the New Deal. How and under what conditions does the House - noted for obstructionism - create majorities capable of governing? The author asserts that critical elections create conditions in the House that enable the majority party to legislate significant policy changes. House elections are normally determined by local factors, but certain elections are dominated by national, cross-cutting issues. The results of these critical elections vary from a change in the majority party to the replacement of both the majority and minority by new parties. The Civil War realignment replaced the Whigs with a new party - the Republicans. In the 1890's realignment the Democratic Party adopted the policy positions of a third party - the Populists. The New Deal realignment saw the Democrats replace the Republicans as the majority power. For each of these critical periods the author uses statistical analysis to examine the way electoral results affected the composition of the congressional parties, the structure of committees, the strength of the party system, and policy decisions. In the final chapter, the author speculates on conditions for policy change outside critical election periods.--Publisher description

Looking at key legislative issues from the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations, the authors clearly and carefully analyze important crux points in lawmaking: the swing votes, the veto, the filibuster.

"This work continues to offer a systematic account of what happens in congressional elections and demonstrates how electoral politics reflect and shape other components of our political system, with profound consequences for representative government." "Political scientist and author Gary C. Jacobson analyzes how congressional campaigns and elections reflect deeper structural patterns and currents in American political life and help determine how - and how well - we are governed. The book traces the connections between electoral politics in Congress and other important political phenomena and makes questions of representation and responsibility its chief normative concern."--Jacket
The underground war( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War One a barbaric war was fought deep beneath the trenches in a maze of tunnels and dugouts over 10 metres underground. This secret front was home to thousands of soldiers who fought the enemy using knives fists and explosives. The Underground War traces an unprecedented hi-tech search for one of the last Allied dugouts deep beneath the cornfields in Flanders, Belgium. An international team of archaeologists and historians must find its entrance pump out thousands of litres of water and then attempt to excavate this relic of the Great War. Their challenge is to discover how big it is and what role the Vampire dugout played in the aftermath of the Battle of Passchendaele
