After Wallace : the 1986 contest for governor and political change in Alabama by Patrick R Cotter( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All Alabama elections are colorful, but the 1986 gubernatorial contest may trump them all for its sheer strangeness. With the retirement of an aging and ill George Wallace, both the issues and candidates contending for the office were able to set the course of Alabama politics for generations to follow. Whereas the Wallace regimes were particular to Alabama, and the gubernatorial campaign was conducted in a partial vacuum with his absence, Alabama also experienced a wave of partisan realignment. A once solidly Democratic South was undergoing a tectonic political shift as white voters in large numbers abandoned their traditional Democratic political home for the revived Republicans, a party shaped in many respects by the Wallace presidential bids of 1968 and 1972 and the Reagan revolution of the 1980s. Alabama's own Democratic party contributed to this massive shift with self-destructive campaign behavior that disgusted many of its traditional voters who wound up staying home or voting for a little-known Republican. From the gubernatorial election of 1986 came the shaky balance between the two parties that exists today. After Wallace recollects and analyzes how these shifts occurred, citing extensive newspaper coverage from the time as well as personal observations and poll data collected by the authors. This volume is certain to be a valuable work for any political scientist, especially those with an interest in Alabama or southern politics

Seeing suffrage : the Washington Suffrage Parade of 1913, its pictures, and its effect on the American political landscape by James Glen Stovall( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On March 3, 1913, the day before Woodrow Wilson's inauguration, leaders of the American suffrage movement organized an enormous march through the capital that served as an important salvo on the long road to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Coinciding with the widespread rise of photography in daily newspapers and significant shifts in journalism, the parade energized a movement that had been in the doldrums for nearly two decades. In Seeing Suffrage, James G. Stovall combines a detailed account of the parade with more than 130 photographs to provide a stunning visual chronicle of one of the most pivotal moments in the struggle for women's rights. Although the women's suffrage movement was sixty-five years old by 1913, the belief that women should vote was still controversial. Reactions to the march--a dazzling spectacle involving between five thousand and eight thousand participants--ranged from bemusement to resistance to violence. The lack of cooperation from the Washington police force exacerbated conflicts along the route and, ultimately, approximately one hundred marchers and participants were injured. Although suffrage leaders publicly expressed disgust at the conduct of the crowd and police, privately they were delighted with the turn of events, taking full advantage of the increased media coverage by repeatedly tying the unruly mob and the actions of the police to those who opposed votes for women. The 1913 procession stands as one of the first political events in American history staged in great part for visual purposes. This revealing work recounts the march from the planning stages to the struggle up Pennsylvania Avenue and showcases the most interesting and informative photographs of that day. Although supporters needed seven more frustrating years to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment, the Washington Suffrage Parade of 1913 can, as this book demonstrates, rightly be seen as the moment that forced the public to take seriously the effort to secure the vote for women."--Publisher's website
The Media in America : a history by Lang Shi( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Media in America is the leading textbook in the field of mass communication history. Previous editions have been used at as many schools as all the other textbooks combined. The reason for its success is, we believe, simply the high standard it uses for the study of history. For example, it is the only textbook that relies mainly on primary sources. The 9th edition retains the qualities that have made previous editions so successful, but it adds some features that make it even better. You will find substantial revisions in several chapters, updated and enlarged bibliographies for all chapters, material on recent major events, and additional informative illustrations. -- Amazon.com
