Presidential greatness by Marc Karnis Landy( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Landy and Sidney Milkis claim that we have had no great presidents in the last half of this century. In this provocative new book, they explain why." "Landy and Milkis look to the past to show how five presidents - Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt - set the standards for presidential leadership and achievement." "Searching for common threads in these five presidencies, Landy and Milkis enable us to better understand both the possibilities and the limitations of the office."--Jacket

The president and the parties : the transformation of the American party system since the New Deal by Sidney M Milkis( Book )

14 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President and the Parties is the first book to examine closely the association between the chief executive and the two-party system. It traces the evolution of the president-party relationship and its implication for American Democracy since the New Deal - from FDR's 1938 "Purge" of the Democratic Party to Lyndon Johnson's Great Society to the celebration of executive centralization during the Reagan "Revolution". Milkis argues that reforms intended to liberate the chief executive from the shackles of partisan politics only weakened an already fragile relationship, isolating presidents from what was once popular and institutional support from their parties. By providing a unique perspective on the history and development of American government, Milkis offers new insights into the decline of the party system and the process that fashioned a stronger, more active national state, but one lacking in representative institutions capable of common deliberation and choice. Placing the issue in contemporary perspective, he warns of the challenges ahead for a nation struggling to repair its frayed connection between government and people
Theodore Roosevelt, the Progressive Party, and the transformation of American democracy by Sidney M Milkis( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the campaign for the 1912 elections, Theodore Roosevelt and his collective activists promoted the Progressive Party and its ambitious, prescient program of economic, social, and political reform that posed profound challenges to constitutional government in the U.S. The author revisits this history to show how a party seemingly consumed by its leaders' ambition dominated the election and left an enduring legacy that set in motion the rise of mass democracy and the expansion of national administrative power
Political parties and constitutional government : remaking American democracy by Sidney M Milkis( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Deal and the triumph of liberalism( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Deal package of programs during the 1930s was not just a historical episode, argue political scientists and historians, but a critical one that left a lasting legacy for American politics and government, and for many was the defining moment in the 20th century. They do however, put it in context between the Progressive Era of the early century and the Great Society of the 1960s. The 12 essays are from a 1998 conference at Brandeis University.

American government : balancing democracy and rights by Marc Karnis Landy( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essence of the story of American politics and government is the relationship between liberalism and democracy. American Government demonstrates that the tensions and complementarities between liberalism and democracy are crucial for understanding each and all of the central governing institutions and political elements of American public life. The book provides all the information and breadth of coverage required of an introductory text but does so in a manner that highlights the drama of politics. It shows that the crucial features of the American political system were established through difficult decisions made under enormous pressure and often agonizing, even bloody, conflict. By placing such critical choices in specific times throughout American history, it is the first textbook to adopt an American political development approach."--Jacket
The politics of major policy reform in postwar America( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Politics of Major Policy Reform in Postwar America examines the politics of recent landmark policy in areas such as homeland security, civil rights, health care, immigration, and trade, and it does so within a broad theoretical and historical context. By considering the politics of major programmatic reforms in the United States since the Second World War - specifically, courses of action aimed at dealing with perceived public problems - a group of distinguished scholars sheds light not only on significant efforts to ameliorate widely recognized ills in domestic and foreign affairs but also on systemic developments in American politics and government. In sum, this volume provides a comprehensive understanding of how major policy breakthroughs are achieved, stifled, or compromised in a political system conventionally understood as resistant to major change. Jeffery A. Jenkins is a Professor in the Department of Politics and Faculty Associate in the Miller Center at the University of Virginia. He has published more than thirty articles in peer-reviewed journals, such as the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Studies in American Political Development. He is also the author (with Charles Stewart III) of Fighting for the Speakership: The House and the Rise of Party Government (2013) and the editor (with Eric M. Patashnik) of Living Legislation: Durability, Change, and the Politics of American Lawmaking (2012)"--

Each chapter begins with a detailed contemporary portrait of its subject
Rivalry and reform : presidents, social movements, and the transformation of American politics by Sidney M Milkis( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few relationships have proved more pivotal in changing the course of American politics than those between presidents and social movements. For all their differences, both presidents and social movements are driven by a desire to recast the political system, often pursuing rival agendas that set them on a collision course. Even when their interests converge, these two actors often compete to control the timing and conditions of political change. During rare historical moments, however, presidents and social movements forged partnerships that profoundly recast American politics. Rivalry and Reform explores the relationship between presidents and social movements throughout history and into the present day, revealing the patterns that emerge from the epic battles and uneasy partnerships that have profoundly shaped reform. Through a series of case studies, including Abraham Lincoln and abolitionism, Lyndon Johnson and the civil rights movement, and Ronald Reagan and the religious right, Sidney M. Milkis and Daniel J. Tichenor argue persuasively that major political change usually reflects neither a top-down nor bottom-up strategy but a crucial interplay between the two. Savvy leaders, the authors show, use social movements to support their policy goals. At the same time, the most successful social movements target the president as either a source of powerful support or the center of opposition. The book concludes with a consideration of Barack Obama's approach to contemporary social movements such as Black Lives Matter, United We Dream, and Marriage Equality
