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

8 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 467 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

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

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 409 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 by David W Brady( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2008, the commission on growth and development (the growth commission) issued its report entitled 'the growth report'. In it the commission attempted to distill what had been learned in the past two decades, from experience and academic and policy research, about strategies and policies that produced sustained high growth in developing countries. It became clear in the course of the work that politics, leadership, and political economy (the interaction of economic and political forces and choices) were centrally important ingredients in the story. Dealing with the politics and the interaction of political and economic forces is a work in progress in research, an important one. Given this breadth, one of the editors' roles is to focus the reader's attention on what they take to be common issues across these chapters. These common problems are fourfold: (1) promoting national unity; (2) building good, solid institutions; (3) choosing innovative and localized policies; and (4) creating political consensus for long-run policy implementation. This report represent an excellent first step toward understanding the role of leadership in generating economic growth, and the author hope that they generate ideas and lead to new research on the problem of leadership in economic growth
