Civic ideals : conflicting visions of citizenship in U.S. history by Rogers M Smith( )

16 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 2,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smith concludes that today the United States is in a period of reaction against the egalitarian civic reforms of the last generation, with nativist, racist, and sexist beliefs regaining influence. He suggests ways that proponents of liberal democracy should alter their view of U.S. citizenship in order to combat these developments more effectively
Still a house divided : race and politics in Obama's America by Desmond S King( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why have American policies failed to reduce the racial inequalities still pervasive throughout the nation? Has President Barack Obama defined new political approaches to race that might spur unity and progress? Still a House Divided examines the enduring divisions of American racial politics and how these conflicts have been shaped by distinct political alliances and their competing race policies. Combining deep historical knowledge with a detailed exploration of such issues as housing, employment, criminal justice, multiracial census categories, immigration, voting in majority-minority distri
Nature and history in American political development : a debate by James W Ceaser( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this inaugural volume of the Alexis de Tocqueville Lectures, political scientist James Ceaser traces the way certain ideas, including nature, history, and religion - which he calls foundational ideas - have been understood and used by statesmen and public intellectuals over the course of American history, from the Puritans to the current day. Ceaser treats these ideas not as pure concepts of philosophy or theology, but rather as elements of political discourse that provide the ground or ultimate appeal for other political ideas, such as liberty or equality. At times, they have critically influenced the course of American political development, offering various opportunities and constraints for political leaders. Ceaser traces the histories of these ideas and their relation to other ideas, to practices, and to the fortunes of successive partisan regimes. Three critical commentators - historian Jack Rakove and political theorists Nancy Rosenblum and Rogers Smith - challenge Ceaser & s arguments in several ways. They suggest that other ideas may be considered foundational, and they prod him to clarify further how foundational ideas work politically. Ceaser responds with vigor, and the result is a spirited debate about large and enduring questions in American politics
Stories of peoplehood : the politics and morals of political membership by Rogers M Smith( )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can we build thriving political communities? In this provocative account of how societies are bound together, Rogers Smith examines the importance of 'stories of peoplehood', narratives that promise economic of political power and define political allegiances in religious, cultural, racial, ethnic, and related terms. Smith argues that no nations are purely civic: all are bound in part by stories that seek to define elements intrinsic to their members' identities and worth. These types of stories can support valuable forms of political life but they also pose dangers that must be understood if they are to be confronted. In contrast to much contemporary writing, Stories of Peoplehood argues for community-building via robust contestation among sharply differing views. This original argument combines accessible theory with colourful examples of myths and stories from around the world and over 2,500 years of human history."--Jacket
The unsteady march : the rise and decline of racial equality in America by Philip A Klinkner( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our nation's commitment to racial equality has never been consistent, nor has it been irresistibly driven forward by America's founding principles. In The Unsteady March, Philip A. Klinkner and Rogers M. Smith disprove the idea that the United States has been on a "steady march" toward the end of racial discrimination. Countering a spate of recent books claiming that black equality has nearly been realized, Klinkner and Smith argue that progress toward equality has a specific and unrecognized history: it has occurred only in brief periods, under special conditions, and it has always been followed by periods of stagnation and retrenchment." "In their conclusion, Klinkner and Smith argue that we are today in a period of retrenchment such as those that have followed previous reform eras. With its insights into contemporary racial politics and its wealth of historical material, The Unsteady March is a comprehensive, if controversial, analysis of race relations across two centuries."--Jacket

CPAC : the origins and role of the conference in the expansion and consolidation of the conservative movement, 1974-1980 by Daniel Parker( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is an annual event that brings conservative politicians, public intellectuals, pundits, and issue activists together in Washington, DC to discuss strategies for achieving their goals through the electoral and policy process. Although CPAC receives a great deal of attention each year from conservative movement activists and the news outlets that cover it, it has attracted less attention from scholars. This dissertation seeks to address the gap in existing knowledge by providing a fresh account of the role that CPAC played in the expansion and consolidation of the conservative movement during the 1970s. Audio recordings of the exchanges that took place at CPAC meetings held between 1974 and 1980 are transcribed and analyzed. The results of this analysis show that during the 1970s, CPAC served as an important forum where previously fragmented single issue groups and leaders of the Old Right and New Right coalitions were able to meet, share ideas, and coordinate their efforts. Through their discursive exchanges at CPAC, these actors united behind a common set of policy positions and political strategies. As they engaged with each other and shared their grievances, they also developed a stronger sense of collective identity rooted in opposition to a common enemy - modern liberalism
