In this critical examination of the state of electoral democracy in the United States, Matthew Streb provides an analysis of the major debates that rage among scholars and reformers on subjects as diverse as the number of elections held, the use of nonpartisan elections, and the presidential primary process.

Written in a clear and engaging style, this book is designed to get students to think critically about what it means to be democratic and how democratic the United States really is.

Partisanship – the act of an individual choosing to affiliate with a particular political party – has long been the driving force behind electoral politics in the United States. Despite this fact, scant attention has been devoted to the American electorate’s party images – the “mental pictures” that individuals have about the parties, which are central to understanding individuals’ political perceptions and ultimately political actions. Party Images in the American Electorate investigates how these party images are tied into the story of polarization and how they affect electoral outcomes in the United States. Selected Contents: List of Figures and Tables. Preface 1. Pictures of Parties 2. Party Images in the Electorate as a Whole 3. Party Images and the Class Cleavage 4.

Blogging the Political Political Participation in a Networked Society Antoinette Pole, Montclair State University, USA Blogging the Political catalogs the individuals engaged in political blogging, explains why they started blogging, and examines what they hope to gain from it. The larger question at hand is whether and how political blogging facilitates civic engagement and mobilization in the United States. Do political bloggers participate in politics through blogging or more traditional activities such as voting or sending an email to an elected official? Do political bloggers encourage their readers to undertake political activities, and how do they go about doing so?

Immigration policy in the United States, Europe, and the Commonwealth went under the microscope after the terror attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent events in London, Madrid, and elsewhere. We have since seen major changes in the bureaucracies that regulate immigration – but have those institutional dynamics led to significant changes in the way borders are controlled, the numbers of immigrants allowed to enter, or national asylum policies? This book examines a broad range of issues and cases in order to better understand if, how, and why immigration policies and practices have changed in these countries in response to the threat of terrorism. In a thorough analysis of border policies, the authors also address how an intensification of immigration politics can have severe consequences for the social and economic circumstances of national minorities of immigrant origin.

Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide

Edited by Derek Chollet, Center for a New American Security, USA, Tod Lindberg, Hoover Institution, USA and David Shorr, Stanley Foundation, USA

2ND EDITION

’Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide sets out to tackle some of the hardest foreign policy issues facing our nation. This volume identifies and grapples with fundamental differences in how many groups of Americans view the world, yet nevertheless establishes enough common ground to move the debate from partisanship to actual policies.’ – Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide brings together twenty leading foreign policy and national security specialists – some of the leading thinkers of their generation – to seek common ground on ten key, controversial areas of policy. In each chapter conservative and liberal experts jointly outline their points of agreement on many of the most pressing issues in U.S. foreign policy, pointing the way towards a more constructive debate. This book shows what happens when specialists take a fresh look at politically sensitive issues purely on their merits; and presents an alternative to the distortions and oversimplifications of today’s polarizing political environment. Selected Contents: Introduction 1. America and the Use of Force: Sources of Legitimacy 2. How to Keep From Overselling or Underestimating the United Nations 3. The Cost of Confusion: Resolving Ambiguities in Detainee Treatment 4. Course Correction in America’s War on Terror 5. The Case for Larger Ground Forces 6. A Full-Court Press Against Nuclear Anarchy 7. Keeping Tabs on China’s Rise 8. Are We All Nation-Builders Now 9. Should Democracy Be Promoted or Demoted? 10. In Defense of Values

Mertus, American University, Washington DC, USA ’Scholars and practitioners seeking to understand the stark differences between the pious rhetoric and prosaic reality of U.S. human rights policy need look no further than this insightful and readable volume by Julie Mertus. As the changes and ramifications of U.S. foreign policy are subjected to scrutiny in both the media and classroom, nothing could be more timely than this critical examination of not only the executive branch and the military but NGOs as well.’ – Thomas G.

Robert Art, Brandeis University, USA This book brings together the essays of Robert Art, one of America’s leading scholars of international relations and U.S. foreign policy. The essays represent some of his most important and influential international relations and foreign policy pieces written since the end of the Cold War. Focused on the theme of American grand strategy, the essays cover such topics as: • the use of force • coercive diplomacy • nuclear deterrence • defence policy • the role of NATO • U.S.-European relations.

Robert Jervis, Columbia University, USA

The essays in this collection possess both theoretical depth and historical breadth, providing a coherent assessment of the role that American military power plays in international politics. It includes a new introduction that provides an overview of American grand strategy and an original afterword in which the author reflects on the future of grand strategy in the post–9/11 world.

With his characteristic verve and clarity, Smith shows just how influential liberal internationalist thinking in the 1990s, with its triumphalist overtones, has been in providing the intellectual capital for the Bush Administration’s quest to spread democracy by force of arms. This is a penetrating book.’ – Robert J. Art, Christian A. Herter Professor of International Relations, Brandeis University

Understanding the Bush Doctrine

Still Struggling

Psychology and Strategy in an Age of Terrorism

Congress and the Challenge of National Security Policymaking

Edited by Stanley A. Renshon, City University of New York Graduate Center, USA and Peter Suedfeld, University of British Columbia, Canada

Charles Cushman, George Washington University, USA

2007: 360pp Hb: 978-0-415-95503-4: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-95504-1: £20.99

Still Struggling provides a brief yet comprehensive introduction to the complicated process of formulating national security policy in the United States. Beginning with an historical discussion of the origins of the notion of “shared powers,” Charles Cushman illustrates how this doctrine invites a struggle between an executive and legislative branch. Examining every major aspect of U.S. security policy including defense policy, intelligence policy, foreign policy, and homeland security policy, Cushman shows how the current structures struggle not only with each other, but also with dealing with the challenges facing the nation today. His conclusions offer suggestions for Congress and the White House that would help them to meet the challenges of today (and tomorrow) more effectively. Selected Contents: Introduction Part 1: The Constitution on Congress, President and National Security 1. Invitation to Struggle: The Doctrine of Shared Powers 2. Institutionalized Struggle: The Modern National Security Apparatus Part 2: The National Security Establishment Today 3. Defense Policy: The Art of Leaf Management 4. Foreign Policy: No Constituency, No Importance 5. Intelligence Policy: Is Anybody Watching the Detectives? 6.
