The politics of same-sex marriage by Clyde Wilcox( )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Same-sex marriage emerged in 2004 as one of the hottest issues of the campaign season. But in a severe blow to gay rights advocates, all eleven states that had the issue on the ballot passed amendments banning the practice, and the subject soon dropped off the media?s radar. This pattern of waxing and waning in the public eye has characterized the debate over same-sex marriage since 1996 and the passing of the Defense of Marriage Act. Since then, court rulings and local legislatures have kept the issue alive in the political sphere, and conservatives and gay rights advocates have made the issu
The values campaign? : the Christian right and the 2004 elections( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,979 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

Political science fiction by Donald M Hassler( )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political Science Fiction examines the close relationship between politics and science fiction and shows how much of the former is grounded in the latter. Sixteen science fiction writers and critics join forces to offer an anthology that explores a diversity of futuristic literature, from the novels of H. G. Wells to Star Trek: The Next Generation, and a spectrum of ideas, from the libertarianism of Robert A. Heinlein to the feminism of Ursula K. LeGuin and Sheri S. Tepper. As the science fiction writer Frederik Pohl observes in the lead essay, the contributors collectively find science fiction to be either implicitly or explicitly political by its very nature. Equally divided between essays that analyze science fiction texts as literature and essays that discuss them as models of political science theory and practice, the collection reveals the propensity of fiction writers to center their works on particular governmental structures. Other essays reveal the ways in which science fiction speaks to the study of international relations, such as the support for realist ideology found in the enormous genre of interspecies war novels and stories. Of particular interest to viewers of Star Trek, three essays deal specifically with the depiction of alien governments, gender identity, and isolationism in both the original and the new television series

Interest groups unleashed by Paul S Herrnson( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2010 US campaign and election was pivotal: the Republican takeover of the House, the advent of 'super PACs', and record-breaking sums spent on a midterm election. More than ever before, interest groups were able to mobilise new resources and new technologies in a shifting set of House and Senate races. This volume explores - in a series of lively case studies - a cross-section of groups, communities, and networks that vividly illustrates the 'unleashing' of interest group activity in the electoral process in response to Citizens United and other court cases and events

Understanding public opinion by Barbara Norrander( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding Public Opinion, edited by Barbara Norrander and Clyde Wilcox, is a collection of original essays that explores the sources, content, and effects of American public opinion at the close of the twentieth century. The book examines the diversity in contemporary public opinion research by focusing on questions such as where attitudes and opinions come from, how they are organized, how they affect an individual's political participation and vote choice, what forms the content of public opinion, and what impact public opinion has on the president, Congress, and the Supreme Court. The chapters, written by leading scholars, present research that exposes readers to both the substance of American public opinion and the process of that research. They reveal how social scientists approach a question, what the research looks like, and how conclusions are derived

Faith, politics, and sexual diversity in Canada and the United States by David Morton Rayside( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent agitation of lesbians, gays, and other sexual minorities for political recognition has provoked a heated response among religious activists, many of whom fear that moral decay is a necessary accompaniment to the public recognition of sexual diversity. In this remarkable comparative study, expert authors explore the tenacity of anti-gay sentiment, as well as the dramatic shifts in public attitudes towards queer groups across all faith communities in both the United States and Canada. They conclude that, despite the ongoing conflict, religious adherence does not invariably entail opposition to the political acknowledgment of queer rights. </body> </html>
