Counting every vote the most contentious elections in American history by Robert L Dudley( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What would have happened if Aaron Burr, rather than Jefferson, had become president? What if Nixon had defeated Kennedy in 1960? What if Al Gore had become president in 2001 instead of George W. Bush? Using six cases, political scientists Robert Dudley and Eric Shiraev argue that engaging in this counterfactual exercise provides an excellent opportunity to revisit history, learn from its lessons, and relate to contemporary elections."-inside jacket

Anti-Americanism in Russia : from Stalin to Putin by Eric Shiraev( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shiraev and Zubok analyze anti-Americanism in Russia, now high again after several years of "honeymoon" with the United States. An evaluation of this phenomenon is significant for current debates on "who lost Russia" in the United States, as well as for assessments of the past and future steps towards NATO enlargement and European integration. This analysis is also crucial for comparative studies on democratic transition of the post-communist societies. Shiraev and Zubok argue that the current anti-Americanism in Russia is largely a new phenomenon of democratic polity, the conclusion that challenges the popular notion that the spread of democracy makes international animosities and conflicts less likely."--Jacket
The Russian transformation : political, sociological, and psychological aspects ( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The transition from a Soviet to a Russian society has not been a smooth ride: crime rates have soared, corruption is at an all-time high, ethnic tensions are fierce, and alcoholism is on the rise. There is perhaps no greater challenge for today's political science student than the study of this transition. The Russian Transformation explains the difficulties in this process from a multi-disciplinary perspective, combining sociological and political-psychological analyses of the Russian political transition since 1985. The volume is an in-depth description of important and unique events in the Soviet Union-Russia, and also contributes to the field of transformational politics, examining the barriers and problems that societies might expect when undertaking fundamental changes in their polities."--Jacket

"Scholars representing seven countries are brought together in this exceptional volume to examine the origins of both anti- and pro-American attitudes within the framework of external causes (the actions of the USA abroad) versus internal causes (the domestic political, ideological, cultural, and psychological characteristics of foreign countries)." "Offering a fresh view of a contemporary issue, the volume is well-suited for class use as a supplementary reader for foreign policy studies, comparative politics, media, political sociology and history."--BOOK JACKET
