Off center : the Republican revolution and the erosion of American democracy by Jacob S Hacker ( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Republicans who run American government today have defied the normal laws of political gravity. They have ruled with the slimmest of majorities and yet have transformed the nation's governing priorities. They have strayed dramatically from the moderate middle of public opinion and yet have faced little public backlash. Again and again, they have sided with the affluent and ideologically extreme while paying little heed to the broad majority of Americans. And they have come out on top. This book shows why--and why this state of affairs can and must be changed. Written by two professional political scientists, it tells the story of a deliberative process restricted and distorted by party chieftains, of unresponsive power brokers subverting the popular will, and of legislation written by and for powerful interests and deliberately designed to mute popular discontent.--From publisher description
Winner-take-all politics : how Washington made the rich richer-and turned its back on the middle class by Jacob S Hacker ( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The very rich have gotten a lot richer these past few decades,even during the current economic crisis, hile most Americans have not. How have they managed to restructure the economy to reap the lion's share, tearing new holes in the safety net and saddling all of us with increased debt and risk? In this book the authors trace the rise of the winner-take-all economy back to a major transformation of American politics in the late 1970s, under a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress. With big business and conservative ideologues organizing themselves to undo the regulations and progressive tax policies that had helped ensure a fair distribution of economic rewards, deregulation got under way, taxes were cut for the wealthiest, and business decisively defeated labor in Washington. And this transformation continued under Reagan and the Bushes as well as Clinton, with both parties caterin to the interests of those at the very top. Here the authors show how a political system that traditionally has been responsive to the middle class has been hijacked by the super rich. In doing so, it not only changes how we view American politics, but also points the way to rebuilding a democracy that serves the interests of the many rather than just those of the wealthy few

The transformation of American politics : activist government and the rise of conservatism by Paul Pierson ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contemporary American political landscape has been marked by two paradoxical transformations: the emergence after 1960 of an increasingly activist state, and the rise of an assertive and politically powerful conservatism that strongly opposes activist government. Leading young scholars take up these issues in The Transformation of American Politics. Arguing that even conservative administrations have become more deeply involved in managing our economy and social choices, they examine why our political system nevertheless has grown divided as never before over the extent to which government
Politics in time : history, institutions, and social analysis by Paul Pierson ( Book )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This groundbreaking book represents the most systematic examination to date of the often-invoked but rarely examined declaration that "history matters." Most contemporary social scientists unconsciously take a "snapshot" view of the social world. Yet the meaning of social events or processes is frequently distorted when they are ripped from their temporal context. Paul Pierson argues that placing politics in time--constructing "moving pictures" rather than snapshots--can vastly enrich our understanding of complex social dynamics, and greatly improve the theories and methods that we use to expl

Dismantling the welfare state? : Reagan, Thatcher, and the politics of retrenchment by Paul Pierson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book offers a careful analysis of the politics of social policy in an era of austerity and conservative governance. Focusing on the administrations of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, Pierson provides a compelling explanation for the welfare state's durability and for the few occasions in which each government was able to achieve significant cutbacks. Pierson's account draws on recent work in "historical institutionalism" and rational-choice theory to fashion an important argument about contemporary policy-making. The politics of retrenchment, he argues, is fundamentally different from that of welfare state expansion. The programs of the modern welfare state - the "policy legacies" of previous governments - generally proved resistant to reform. Hemmed in by the political supports that have developed around mature social programs, conservative opponents of the welfare state were successful only when they were able to divide the supporters of social programs, compensate those negatively affected, or hide what they were doing from potential critics. This book will be of interest to those in the fields of comparative public policy and political economy as well as to those concerned with the development of the modern welfare state
