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

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 806 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

Reagan's victory : the presidential election of 1980 and the rise of the right by Andrew Busch( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 614 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

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

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 459 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
Outsiders and openness in the presidential nominating system by Andrew Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 405 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
Truman's triumphs : the 1948 election and the making of postwar America by Andrew Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 395 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
Ronald Reagan and the politics of freedom by Andrew Busch( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 358 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

After hope and change : the 2012 elections and American politics by James W Ceaser( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As they have every four years since 1992, James W. Ceaser and Andrew E. Busch--joined in 2008 by John J. Pitney Jr.--once again provide the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the national election, including the presidential nomination process and election and congressional elections. As always Ceaser, Busch, and Pitney combine a concise account of the elections as well as its broader context for American politics and institutions. The 2012 election was the culmination of the most expensive campaign battle in the history of politics. President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney fought a grueling ground-war for the hearts and minds of American voters, but there was far more that went into determining the outcome of this election than two men on stage. Demographic shifts, the skyward rise of social media's political relevance and shocking developments on shores both foreign and domestic ultimately led Barack Obama back to the White House for a second term as President, leaving people around the world anxiously wondering what might lie ahead for America after hope and change."--Publisher's website
The imperial presidency and the Constitution by Gary James Schmitt( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 48 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 roadmap for assessing the propriety of executive behavior
