Rivals for power : presidential-congressional relations by James A Thurber( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes power struggle between the president and Congress, with leading congressional and presidential scholars and knowledgeable former public officials considering the historical, political, and constitutional foundations of conflict between the two branches. The authors also give practical advice about how to build cooperative policymaking between the president and Congress as they struggle over major crises in solving economic problems and addressing domestic issues and the challenges in defense and foreign policy making. The book features original academic research and practitioner knowledge from the White House and the Hill. This fourth edition includes all new essays with unique and critical viewpoints on the role of the president and Congress in the policy making process. Many of the essays focus on lessons learned about cooperation and conflict between the two branches from the Clinton and Bush presidencies. The essays include preliminary analyses of President Barak Obama's relationship with Congress. Because the authors have made major contributions as congressional and presidential scholars, and have played key roles in Congress, in the White House, in the media, as lobbyists, each chapter presents a different perspective

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume present original data and analysis describing the world of campaign consultants. The nine chapters examine and analyze: the diversity and complexity of the consulting business and consultants' attitudes about candidates, voters, political parties, the media, ethics, and the need for reform; the impact of consultants on fundraising, strategy, and communications, and the electoral success of consultants in congressional elections, initiatives, and referenda; and the internationalization of election campaign consultancy and the spread of political consultancy worldwide." "Campaign Warriors illuminates the work of professional political consultants and their growing influence on the electoral process and American democracy."--Jacket
Crowded airwaves : campaign advertising in elections( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crowded Airwaves gathers some of the most significant new work in American political advertising and communication. The contributors provide an objective and balanced analysis of political advertising: its causes, its growth, and its consequences on elections in the United States." "The chapters in this volume tackle three of the most interesting and most complicated issues in political advertising today: the characterization of ads and the need to measure their impact; the agenda-setting and priming effects of ads; and the role and implications of issue advertising for the electorate. The contributors focus in particular on the effects and consequences of negative advertising." "Crowded Airwaves will appeal to readers who are interested in political campaigns and communication. It will be of special importance to those concerned with the tone and content of electoral campaigns and political discourse."--Jacket

Obama in office by James A Thurber( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers first scholarly assessment of President Obama and his first two years in office. This is the first based on the original scholarship of well-established political scientists, practitioners, and journalists who have studied American political institutions and domestic and international public policy. All offer a fresh perspective on President Obama and his relationship with Congress, interest groups, and a wide variety of policy making communities. So much has happened to test the administration during this period, this book is timely and rich with new insights into the continuing great recession and its jobless recovery, TARP spending, efforts to save the automobile industry, stimulus legislation, historic health care reform along with reform in other key areas including financial regulation, education, taxation, immigration policy, climate change legislation, a historic deficit, the BP oil leak in the Gulf, and the continuation of two wars. Extreme partisanship, deadlock, and anticipation of Republican midterm electoral success have made policy making difficult despite a Democratic majority in Congress. Looking beyond the midterms, these authors consider the results of 2010, the impact of the Tea Party, and the prospects for 2012. Obama entered office in the midst of the perfect storm; will he exit at the hands of a populist tsunami or return for four more years as the teapot tempest subsides?
American gridlock : the sources, character, and impact of political polarization( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Gridlock brings together the country's preeminent experts on the causes, characteristics, and consequences of partisan polarization in U.S. politics and government, with each chapter presenting original scholarship and novel data. This book is the first to combine research on all facets of polarization, among the public (both voters and activists), in our federal institutions (Congress, the presidency, and the Supreme Court), at the state level, and in the media. Each chapter includes a bullet-point summary of its main argument and conclusions, and is written in clear prose that highlights the substantive implications of polarization for representation and policymaking. The authors examine polarization with an array of current and historical data, including public opinion surveys; electoral, legislative, and congressional data; experimental data; and content analyses of media outlets. American Gridlock's theoretical and empirical depth distinguishes it from any other volume on polarization."--Page i
