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

19 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 973 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. Edited by leading scholars Charles S. Bullock III and Mark J. 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. -- from back cover
Executive privilege : presidential power, secrecy, and accountability by Mark J Rozell( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: With the ghost of Watergate still haunting our political conscience, one might expect American presidents to hesitate before invoking executive privilege. But in the wake of the Clinton impeachment and with the onset of the Bush years, we are again confronted with the questionable exercise of presidential prerogatives. Mark Rozell's Executive Privilege has provided for the past decade an in-depth review of the historical exercise of executive privilege and an analysis of the proper scope and limits of presidential power. Now Rozell has updated this important work to cover two new presidents and show how both have revived the national debate over executive privilege. Rozell takes a balanced approach to a subject mired in controversy, providing both a historical overview of the doctrine and an explanation of its importance in the American political process. Exercised as far back as George Washington, executive privilege caught modern America's attention with Nixon's abuses of power. Although it is viewed by many as undemocratic-or even a "constitutional myth"--Rozell argues that executive privilege not only derives from the Constitution but, if prudently used, even supports the president's efforts in constructing and implementing policy. This new edition features a substantial new chapter on the Clinton and Bush presidencies, as well as textual revisions throughout that reflect the author₂s latest analysis of the proper scope of executive privilege, given the numerous secrecy controversies of the past decade. Rozell reviews Bill Clinton's resistance to numerous congressional and grand jury investigations and he assesses George W. Bush's proclivity for secrecy. Rozell explains how each of these presidents has sparked controversy over attempts to revive executive privilege-in the process doing significant damage to this constitutional principle. He also addresses the potential roles and influence of both the judiciary and Congress regarding executive privilege. Rozell continues to stress the legitimate role of executive privilege and looks to the day when a president can use it without embarrassment. His book remains the most balanced treatment available of this concept, and allows readers to better understand the impact of the Clinton years and also assess the Bush administration in action

The Christian Right never ceases to surprise professional observers of American politics.

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?

Considering the Bush presidency( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George W. Bush became president under some of the most unusual circumstances in US history. After a contested election in which Bush lost the popular vote, many people felt that he would have difficulty establishing his legitimacy to lead. The events of September the 11th, 2001 transformed the Bush presidency, as his domestic policy agenda took a back seat to the international fight against terrorism. "Considering the Bush Presidency" provides a scholarly review and analysis of the George W. Bush presidency. Written by leading political science scholars, it covers such topics as presidential leadership of Congress, public opinion leadership, the symbolic presidency, presidential war powers, the Bush transition, staffing the Bush presidency, executive privilege battles and Cheney as vice president. It examines the remarkable events and the leadership of an administration that has already become one of the most important to study in the modern era
Power and prudence : the presidency of George H.W. Bush by Ryan J Barilleaux( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Power and Prudence is a study in presidential evaluation. It represents a challenge to the conventional wisdom that has developed on the first Bush administration and presents an important reinterpretation of the leadership of a poorly understood president. This thought-provoking analysis suggests that the circumstances of his presidency may have limited Bush's opportunities to articulate or achieve far-reaching policy objectives. These circumstances included the lack of an electoral mandate, Bush's succession to a very popular and ideological leader, his inheritance of a daunting budget deficit, and the situation of divided government. The authors' interpretation of the Bush administration is supported by interviews with members of Bush's White House staff and the limited archival record thus far opened to scholars. A read into the workings of a contemporary presidency, Power and Prudence will appeal to presidential scholars as well as the politically minded reader."--Jacket
