The state of the parties : the changing role of contemporary American parties by John Clifford Green( Book )

52 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 2,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This is an excellent collection of analyses, the most recent in a unique series examining party politics since the early 1990s. The wide range of research findings, dealing with issues ranging from representation to campaign finance, will be essential to students of politics and demonstrates how central the study of party politics is to an understanding of democracy."--Marjorie R. Hershey, Indiana University." ""I couldn't be more pleased by how well the John C. Green and Daniel J. Coffey volume supplements current happenings in politics where textbooks are necessarily weak. This newest edition features the most remarkable group of contributors yet. Each Chapter provides critical insights in helping us make sense of today's rapidly evolving party system."--Marc Joseph Hetherington, Vanderbilt University." "Every four years, The State of the Parties brings readers up to date on party action in election years and in between. With the dual themes of continuity and change characterizing the new edition, this essential party primer includes three new chapters on party roles in the 2008 election, a section on the impact of party resources for the campaign, extensive coverage of party mobilization efforts via the Internet and local activity, and new chapters covering topics ranging from Republicans' fall from grace to party governance under Nancy Pelosi to President Obama's role in party politics, and as always, a distinguished roster of contributors."--Jacket
The values campaign? : the Christian right and the 2004 elections( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Christian Right never ceases to surprise professional observers of American politics. With the Christian coalition in disarray, many expected that the movement would play less of a role in the 2004 elections. But when exit polls reported that moral values were the most commonly cited reason for presidential vote choice, pundits immediately proclaimed the importance of the values vote. Yet the role of the Christian Right, of statewide referenda on same-sex marriage, and of religious mobilization remained the subject of debate. The Values Campaign? The Christian Right and the 2004 Elections r
The faith factor : how religion influences American elections by John Clifford Green( )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of religion on the 2004 presidential election results provoked widespread consternation and surprise. Given the intensity and closeness of the results, however, the role of religion should not have come as a shock. In fact, religion and faith have played a vital role in American elections for some time, and here, Green explores the links and how they have changed over time. Specifically, he concludes that there was an "old religion gap" that described longstanding political differences among religious communities, which has been supplanted by a "new religion gap" that shows political divisions based on religious behavior and belief. Green puts the differences into context and documents the changing role of religion in politics over the last sixty years. Covering three areas of religion that tend to influence election outcomes, Green illuminates the meaning of religious belonging, behaving, and believing in current political context. Each of these aspects of religion affects the way people vote and their views of issues, ideology, and partisanship. He reviews the importance of "moral values" in the major party coalitions and discusses the role religious appeals have in presidential campaigns. In addition, he compares the influence of religion to other factors such as gender, age, and income. Given the emphasis on the influence of religion on American politics and elections in recent years, this book serves as a cogent reminder that the situation is not new, and offers a careful analysis of the real role faith plays in the electing of government officials. - Publisher

The Assemblies of God : Godly love and the revitalization of American Pentecostalism by Margaret M Poloma( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Assemblies of God draws on fresh, up-to-date research including quantitative surveys and interviews conducted within twenty-two Assemblies of God congregations to offer a new sociological portrait of the AG for the new millennium. The authors suggest that there is a revitalization of the movement in the works within the context of the larger Pentecostal upswing, and that this revitalization may be spurred by what the authors call "godly love" : the dynamic interaction between perceived divine and human love that enlivens and expands adherents' benevolence

Superintending democracy : the courts and the political process( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A diverse collection of essays by nationally recognized scholars, politicians, and lawyers that challenges the popular myth that the U.S. Supreme Court is an apolitical institution. It analyzes the manner in which the U.S. Supreme Court superintends the electoral process through its judicial decision-making. As a provocative study of the intersection between law and politics, it considers whether the nation's highest court, as an inherently undemocratic and "counter-majoritarian" political institution, should enter the so-called "political thicket" and decide legal disputes concerning political corruption, campaign finance, political parties, patronage, and redistricting
The diminishing divide : religion's changing role in American politics by Andrew Kohut( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Finally, The Diminishing Divide offers a look at the future." "As candidates and elected officials increasingly air their personal faith in public places with apparent political intent, and as parishioners are marshaled into political action by clergy and political groups, the authors lay out the background against which religion's power in American political life will be played in the new century."--Jacket

In the wake of Election 2000 and the Ralph Nader factor, this collection of essays by political scientists examines the possibilities for and performance of minor parties in the American political system.

New York party politics and Congressional and state legislative elections add depth to our understanding of party politics in action. A public opinion survey shows surprising variation in citizens' attitudes toward minor parties and multiparty politics nationwide. Will minor parties flourish or flounder in the 2004 election season? This volume offers a variety of views

The politics of ideas : intellectual challenges facing the American political parties( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection addresses the importance of ideas, and ideas of importance, to American politics at the beginning of a new century. On the one hand, the contributors find a distressing absence of ideas in American politics and a parallel rise of the power of political identities, interests, and other detrimental influences. On the other hand, many of the ideas that are present are superficial and unproductive. The contributors debate the role of the major political parties in developing and promoting better ideas to reenergize American politics in the next century, and address the search for a workable public philosophy, party responsibility, party policy among Republicans and Democrats, and democratic citizenship."--Jacket

The new politics of the old South : an introduction to Southern politics by Charles S Bullock( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its fifth edition, The New Politics of the Old South is the best and most comprehensive analysis and history of political behaviors and shifting demographics in America’s southern states.

Rozell, this book has been updated through the 2012 elections to provide the most accurate and useful snapshot of the state of southern politics, and the ways in which they have developed over time. The southern electorate is a fascinating, dynamic body politic, and the study of its evolution is paramount to understanding the broader political developments occurring at a national level. While accessible to any interested reader, this edition illuminates the South’s essential and growing role in the study, and the story, of American politics."--
The Disappearing South? : studies in regional change and continuity by Robert P Steed( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is widespread agreement that the South has changed dramatically since the end of World War II. Social, demographic, economic, and political changes have altered significantly the region long considered the nation's most distinctive. There is less agreement, however, about the extent to which the forces of nationalization have eroded the major elements of Southern distinctiveness. Although this volume does not purport to settle the debate on Southern political change, it does present a variety of recent evidence that helps put this important debate into perspe
The financiers of congressional elections : investors, ideologues, and intimates by Peter L Francia( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Individual donors play a critical role in financing congressional elections, accounting for more than half of all money raised in House campaigns. But significant donors (defined here as those contributing more than 200) are the least understood participants in the system. Defenders assert that contributing money to campaigns is part of a broader pattern of civic involvement and is free speech that gives a voice to various interests. Detractors argue that these contributions are undemocratic, enabling wealthy citizens to overwhelm the voices of the many and to promote narrow business
