Citizen democracy : political activists in a cynical age by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Apathy and antipathy toward politics are epidemic. Citizen Democracy provides the antidote. In this revised and updated edition, Stephen E. Frantzich portrays citizens from every walk of life - rich and poor, old and young, black and white, male and female, left and right, famous and obscure - as they choose to become involved in politics at a level to which readers can relate." "Citizen Democracy shows ordinary people engaged in extraordinary civic activity. Their causes run the gamut from civil rights to flag burning, from the Internet to the environment - but their common cause is the fact that they creatively entered the arena of national public policy making and made a difference."--Jacket

Founding father : how C-SPAN's Brian Lamb changed politics in America by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Unlike most networks, C-SPAN's origin, development, operations, and legacy can be traced back to one person. Brian Lamb has never been elected to office nor appointed to a policy-making position, yet his impact on American politics supercedes that of many whose titles and positions imply greater influence. The "founding father" and "inspirational heart" of C-SPAN serves as the broker for democracy." "Founding Father is the first biography of the enigmatic, self-effacing, and modest Brian Lamb. It explores Lamb's experiences as a student in the Midwest, public affairs officer to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, White House staffer during the Johnson and Nixon administrations (including his efforts to advise and prepare Vice President Gerald Ford to assume the presidency following the anticipated resignation of President Richard Nixon), Capitol Hill press secretary, media columnist, and many other previously unknown stories. Founding Father aha chronicles the creation and rise of C-SPAN from a dream, to an unknown niche network, to the network of record for public affairs with its legion of C-SPAN junkies." --Book jacket

Congress : games and strategies by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Congress: Games and Strategies, fourth edition, is an up-to-date look at the 21st century Congress from the perspective of a professional political scientist and congressional staff member turned academic. As such, it provides both academic and real-world insights into the unique and often impenetrable world of our national legislature. Using the most recent academic literature as well as quotes from current members of Congress, it seeks to explore the overlap between theory and reality. The book uses a game analogy as an organizing theme and as a toolbox, recognizing that much of Congress' activity is understood by analyzing the players, the rules under which they work, the strategies they employ and the pattern of winning and losing that result. Updated through the 2008 election, the book includes a host of features intended to enhance comprehension, including boxes that allow students to hear what congressmen and congresswomen themselves say about the institution. --Publisher description
