Political communication : the Manship School guide by Robert Mann( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new era of political power has arrived, one in which the social media forces of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter indisputably play a larger role in the political process. In this revisedand updated edition of Political Communication:The Manship School Guide, edited by Robert Mann and David D. Perlmutter, contributors discuss technological changes in the context of studies and techniques that remain unchallenged, resulting in a truly comprehensive manual to the world of political communication. This shift in communication began with Howard Dean's social media interaction between voters and candidates. Later, Barack Obama redefined these techniques during his march to the White House. This intriguing development in political campaigns focuses the impact of social media on political consultation and communication, and this volume provides an up-to-date and peerless guide to the events, methods, technologies, venues, theories, and applications of political dialogues. More than just a how-to primer, this revised and expanded edition also expertly explains the process behind the political engine. Political Communication: The Manship School Guide includes individual essays that tackle the growing myths revolving around politics, such as the political money-monster and the ''Mr. Smith Goes to Washington''-candidate fantasy. Twenty-seven chapters from a variety of contributors--including academics, journalists, and political professionals--provide insightful, astute, and critical essays for a deeper understanding of political communication and the many roles the public has played in twenty-firstcentury politics. With this second edition, Political Communication:The Manship School Guide offers readers a valuable resource that clarifies the confusing world of politics

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Freedom Would Triumph: The Civil Rights Struggle in Congress, 1954?1968 recalls the most significant and inspiring legislative battle of the twentieth century?the two decades of struggle in the halls of Congress that resulted in civil rights for the descendants of American slaves. Robert Mann's comprehensive analysis shows how political leaders in Washington?Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, John F. Kennedy, and others?transformed the ardent passion for freedom?the protests, marches, and creative nonviolence of the civil rights movement?into concrete progress for justice"--Publisher website (September 2007)
The walls of Jericho : Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Richard Russell, and the struggle for civil rights by Robert Mann( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hubert Humphrey: the idealistic firebrand who electrified the 1948 Democratic convention and relentlessly championed civil rights for more than twenty years. Lyndon Johnson: the wily, pragmatic Senate majority leader who resisted calls for civil rights but eventually, as president, became the driving force behind the monumental 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act. And Richard Russell: the passionate conservative senator from Georgia who vainly defended a dying segregationist way of life. Their personal and political lives strangely and inextricably intertwined, these three stood at the center of the storm during the legislative battles to establish American civil and voting rights. Drawing on rich archival materials and on interviews with participants and witnesses, Robert Mann has written an unforgettable account of the intrigue, the compromises, the friendships, and the rivalries of these three powerful men and their complex relationships with other members of the Senate, including Everett Dirksen, Paul Douglas, John F. Kennedy, Albert Gore Sr., John Stennis, and James O. Eastland. It is a classically American story about the perseverance, eloquence, duplicity, and genius of different men in pursuit of different goals - and the battered triumph of tolerance, fairness, and justice
A journalist's diplomatic mission : Ray Stannard Baker's World War I diary by Ray Stannard Baker( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the height of World War I, in the winter of 1917-1918, one of the Progressive era's most successful muckracking journalists, Ray Stannard Baker (1870-1946), set out on a special mission to Europe on behalf of the Wilson administration. While posing as a foreign correspondent for the New Republic and the New York World, Baker assessed public opinion in Europe about the war and postwar settlement. American officials in the White House and State Department held Baker's wide-ranging, trenchant reports in high regard. After the war, Baker remained in government service as the president's press s
Working congress : a guide for senators, representatives, and citizens by Robert Mann( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1964, as the polarizing Civil Rights Act made its way through the House and Senate, and Congress navigated one of the most tumultuous eras in American history, a Harris Poll put the institution's approval rating at 60 percent. Why then, fifty years later, has the public's approval of Congress eroded to an all-time low of 10 percent? Working Congress: A Guide for Senators, Representatives, and Citizens seeks to isolate the reasons for Congress's staggering decline in public opinion, and to propose remedies to reverse the grave dysfunction in America's most important political institution. Aided by the input of retired members of Congress from both major parties, editor Robert Mann and his fellow contributors identify paralyzing partisan rancor as perhaps the most significant reason for the American public's declining support of its main representative body. The lack of mutual trust within Congress reflects (and creates) the suspicion and animosity of the great majority of Americans. Working Congress argues that members of Congress must find a path to cooperation if they are to function as the representative institution the Founders intended."--Publisher's website

The political philosophy of the New Deal by Hubert Horatio Humphrey( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brought up on Wilsonian democracy and populist ideals, a young Hubert Humphrey witnessed the near-failure of the American political system during the Great Depression and its revival under Franklin D. Roosevelt. In The Political Philosophy of the New Deal, Humphrey responds to the changing political landscape of his early adulthood and offers a wide-ranging analysis of the New Deal and its place in the American traditions of individualism and social responsibility. First published in 1970, Humphrey's book makes the case that the New Deal, by emphasizing stability for all citizens, situated itself firmly within the traditions of American democracy. His cogent assessment of Roosevelt's policies offers insights still applicable in current-day discourse about the financial and social sectors within the United States. This edition of Humphrey's classic work includes a new foreword by Robert Mann, who explains the enduring importance of the book and makes a strong case for the relevance of Humphrey's ideas in today's political climate
