Regulating wetlands protection : environmental federalism and the States by Ronald Keith Gaddie( )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wetlands are a valuable natural resource, yet over 200,000 acres are destroyed in the United States each year. An alternative recently promoted to improve wetland protection is state assumption of the law governing wetland protection, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (section 404). This book discusses the implementation problems associated with the national wetland regulation program and examines the state assumption option in twelve states, with extended case studies of Florida, Maryland, Michigan, and New Jersey."--Jacket
David Duke and the politics of race in the South by John C Kuzenski( )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2020 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalists have thoroughly documented David Duke's rise to prominence in Louisiana politics, but until now, few intensive analyses of the Duke phenomenon have been undertaken. This new collection identifies the significant junctures of Duke's political career, from its earliest beginnings to his recent campaigns for Governor, the Senate, and the Presidency. Through a variety of methods and approaches, the contributors to this work advance our understanding of what made this former Klansman a significant political force, and of how and why he very nearly succeeded in his attempts to gain higher office. The authors contend that the racial overtones of the 1950s and 1960s, both explicit and implicit, have returned in the 1990s in a more subtle, polished, and somehow socially acceptable way. They argue convincingly that changes in electoral politics throughout the South provide the structural basis for this "rebirth" of racially charged political campaigns. Even as messenger supplanted message in the rise of David Duke, however, one simple observation remained true: The politics of the South - and Louisiana in particular - remain rooted at least partly in, as V.O. Key phrased it, "the Negro question." The first work to study Duke and the politics of race entirely from a rigorous political science perspective, this collection makes a considerable contribution to our understanding of Duke's popularity, his constituencies, and the reasons for both his successes and his failures
The rise and fall of the Voting Rights Act by Charles S Bullock( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In tracing the development of the Voting Rights Act from its inception, Charles S. Bullock III, Ronald Keith Gaddie, and Justin J. Wert begin by exploring the political and legal aspects of the Jim Crow electoral regime. Detailing both the subsequent struggle to enact the law and its impact, they explain why the Voting Rights Act was necessary. The authors draw on court cases and election data to bring their discussion to the present with an examination of the 2006 revision and renewal of the act, and its role in shaping the southern political environment in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, when Barack Obama was chosen. Bullock, Gaddie, and Wert go on to closely evaluate the 2013 Shelby County decision, describing how the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court created an appellate environment that made the act ripe for a challenge
The economic realities of political reform : elections and the U.S. Senate by James L Regens( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assessing the potential impact of several electoral reform proposals, Professors Regens and Gaddie argue that debates over the nature and consequences of proposed changes in election finance are often waged without an underlying point of theoretical reference. In addition, little consideration is placed upon impacts relative to each other or collectively on the political system. Spending limits and public funding proposals, they contend, will not have the effects expected by reform advocates. Term limit and public funding proposals would disrupt the rent-seeking relationship between legislators and economic interests, and these proposals would also face political and constitutional barriers to implementation
The triumph of voting rights in the South by Charles S Bullock( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Voting Rights Act of 1965 achieved what two constitutional amendments and three civil rights acts could not: giving African Americans in the South access to the ballot free from restriction or intimidation. The most exhaustive treatment of elections and race in the region in sixty years, The Triumph of Voting Rights in the South explores the impact of that landmark legislation and highlights lingering concerns about minority political participation."--Jacket
Born to run : origins of the political career by Ronald Keith Gaddie( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born to Run tells the stories of nine young politicians from all walks of life who enter into races at the state and local levels in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Georgia, Nebraska, and Maine
Elections to open seats in the U.S. House : where the action is by Ronald Keith Gaddie( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shifting the focal point from incumbency to open seat competition in the U.S. House of Representatives is the task this book embraces. In the process, the authors demonstrate the importance of candidates and competition, and the role of money, gender, and special elections in determining how open seats get filled and when partisan changes occur. -- Amazon.com
Slingshot : the defeat of Eric Cantor by Lauren Cohen Bell( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the authors take advantage of behind-the-scenes access to the Brat campaign to explain the challenger's victory. They examine the essential need for elected officials to maintain strong support in their home districts and just how Cantor's focus on climbing the party ranks in Washington contributed to his loss. They also show how local "rules of the game" -particularly voter mobilization in this case-affect elections, and they explore the continuing impact of the Tea Party and its role in the factionalism of current Southern politics.--Publisher's description
The new politics of the old South : an introduction to Southern politics by Joseph D Giammo( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 76 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."--

This fresh look at southern politics clarifies the recent and dramatic development of party competition in the South. Southern politics has changed dramatically during the past half century.
