The front-loading problem in presidential nominations by William G Mayer( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Mayer and Andrew Busch define the parameters of the front-loading question as well as its impact. They trace the history that shaped the current system and explain why it is such a critical element of presidential elections. Most important, the authors present a detailed analysis of all the major proposals for coping with front-loading and of the political and constitutional obstacles to reform. While they conclude that there is no easy solution to this complex issue, they identify a general direction for reform efforts. They also feel that the political parties should be the prime movers in formulating and implementing changes."--Jacket

Epic journey : the 2008 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With President George W. Bush's approval ratings at record lows, the 2008 election was a contest that Democrats were predicted to win. And with Barack Obama's victory over John McCain, they did. But it was the highly unlikely journey to this likely destination that set this presidential election apart from others. As they have every four years since 1992, James W. Ceaser and Andrew E. Busch once again provide the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the presidential election. Joined on this book by John J. Pitney, Jr., the authors chronicle the epic journey -culminating in the election of the first African American president- of a group of extraordinary candidates and a nation
Red over blue : the 2004 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From moral values to weapons of mass destruction, from exit polls to Swift Boat Veterans, from red states to blue states, the 2004 Presidential election left an indelible mark on American politics. In Red over Blue: The 2004 Election and American Politics, James W. Ceaser and Andrew E. Busch go beyond headlines and soundbites to explore the events, outcomes, and effects of the most recent exercise in American democracy. Beginning with an analysis of George W. Bush's first term and continuing through the primaries, general election, and aftermath, the authors share their insight and analysis through a clear and engaging narrative. Ceaser & Busch also look beyond the Presidential contest to examine important house, senate and gubernatorial races, as well as controversial state initiatives that played an important role in the 2004 election season. Building on Ceaser & Busch's studies of the 1992, 1996, and 2000 elections, this volume is essential reading for courses in American Government, Campaigns and Elections, and Presidential Politics, as well as for any American interested in the real and lasting importance of the 2004 elections. -- Amazon.com
Reagan's victory : the presidential election of 1980 and the rise of the right by Andrew Busch( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many have pointed to the Iran hostage crisis, others to galloping inflation. In reality, as Andrew Busch makes clear, Ronald Reagan's defeat of President Jimmy Carter in 1980 was attributable to more than any one issue, no matter how galvanizing. It marked the growing ascendancy of conservative attitudes that had been gaining strength for two decades - and marked the clear end of the era of New Deal liberalism." "Busch offers the first comprehensive study of this contest, going beyond journalistic accounts to show why it remains one of the truly landmark elections of the past century. Through a compelling story full of colorful characters, unexpected plot twists, and a dramatic finale, he reveals how it both reflected the politics of its time and foreshadowed our nation's political future."--Jacket

Truman's triumphs : the 1948 election and the making of postwar America by Andrew Busch( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chicago Tribune headline "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" remains infamously wrong about the outcome of the 1948 presidential election. But, as the author reveals, there is much more to this story than the well-worn image of a victorious and beaming President Harry Truman parading the newspaper's erroneously headlined front page for all to see. Primarily a contest between Truman and challenger Thomas Dewey, the 1948 presidential race offered something for everyone, including two third-party candidates (Strom Thurmond and Henry Wallace), triumphant grit, tragic hubris, dangerous naivete, accidents of fate, accusations of betrayal, foreign crises, the birth of Israel in the Middle East, a dramatic special session of Congress, internecine battles among unions and liberals, spies, extremists galore (including Ku Klux Klansmen and Communists), the first televised convention, wayward polls, and, of course, a final result that surprised many. This fresh account goes beyond previous work by examining more closely the nomination season, key congressional elections, and the state of public opinion. He also digs into splits in both parties, the Democrats seeing Southern segregationists and the far left run their own candidates and the Republicans facing a division between philosophical wings representing the 80th Congress and the presidential ticket, and tells why the Republican schism proved more damaging. He concludes that the election was especially significant as an affirmation of the New Deal, of anti-Communist containment, and of gradual progress in civil rights, all of which established the political baseline for postwar America
Outsiders and openness in the presidential nominating system by Andrew Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely and insightful book, Andrew Busch examines the relationship of outsiders to the presidential nominating system since the late nineteenth century. Through a series of carefully selected case studies, Busch exposes the nominating apparatus, its changes over time, and its effects on American elections. He pays particular attention to the nominating "reforms" enacted in the early 1970s, and he studies in depth the campaigns of Estes Kefauver, Barry Goldwater, George Wallace, Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Jimmy Carter, Gary Hart, Paul Tsongas, Jerry Brown, David Duke, Pat Buchanan, Jesse Jackson, and Ross Perot
The Constitution on the campaign trail : the surprising political career of America's founding document by Andrew Busch( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Constitution on the Campaign Trail finds evidence for a long, broad decline in the use of constitutional rhetoric since the mid-nineteenth century. Making matters worse, the modern medium most responsible for conveying campaign messages on a day-to-day basis - television advertising - has proven least conducive to constitutional argument. However, and perhaps surprisingly, American campaigns have actually seen a limited resurgence in constitutional rhetoric over the past four decades, driven in large part by increased concern with judicial issues, rights, and federalism. The political analysis found in The Constitution on the Campaign Trail is firmly grounded in historical research and the conclusions reached are trenchant."--BOOK JACKET
Ronald Reagan and the politics of freedom by Andrew Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Andrew E. Busch goes beyond economic and foreign policies to examine Reagan's understanding of statesmanship. Busch analyzes Reagan's conscious attempt to strengthen the separation of powers, federalism, and traditional rhetoric, and his efforts to revive the notion of limited government in a Constitutional Republic. In this new study, Busch concludes that Ronald Reagan's politics of freedom found in his discourse, policy, and coalition-building achieved significant successes in the 1980s and beyond
Defying the odds : the 2016 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bitterness and joy, outrage and satisfaction, shame and pride, escapes to safe places and displays of celebration - these were just a few of the conflicting reactions that greeted the election of Donald Trump. One point, however, is beyond dispute: Donald Trump defied the odds, whether set by bookmakers, political pundits, or even pollsters. In this book [the authors] review the race for the presidency and congressional and state elections through the short lens of politics today and the long lens of American political history. At the core of the 2016 election, they seek to understand and explain the different reasons for Trump's success at each stage of the campaign.--Back cover

Pitney, Jr., combine a concise account of the elections as well as the broader context for American politics and institutions
The imperial presidency and the Constitution( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time and again, in recent years, the charge has been made that sitting presidents have behaved 'imperially,' employing authorities that break the bounds of law and the Constitution. It is now an epithet used to describe presidencies of both parties. The Imperial Presidency and the Constitution examines this critical issue from a variety of perspectives: analyzing the president's role in the administrative state, as commander-in-chief, as occupant of the modern 'Bully Pulpit,' and, in separate essays, addressing recent presidents' relationship with Congress and the Supreme Court. The volume also deepens the discussion by taking a look back at Abraham Lincoln's expansive use of executive power during the Civil War where the tension between law and necessity were at their most extreme, calling into question the 'rule of law' itself. The volume concludes with an examination of how the Constitution's provision of both 'powers and duties' for the president can provide a road map for assessing the propriety of executive behavior"--Back cover

The Obama presidency in the constitutional order : a first look by Carol McNamara( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Obama administration is shaping up to be one of the most consequential in recent American history. In this book, a diverse group of presidential scholars step back from the partisan debate to consider the first two years of the Obama presidency through the lens of the U.S. Constitution's theory, structure, and powers. They ask how Barack Obama understands and exercises formal constitutional and informal powers and responsibilities of his presidency, from foreign policy and public policy to his political leadership of the Democratic Party and the nation as a whole"--Page 4 of cover
