Culture war? : the myth of a polarized America by Morris P Fiorina( Book )
22 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,034 libraries worldwide
"Authored by one of the most respected political scientists in America, Morris P. Fiorina's Culture War? supports a compelling narrative with polling data to debunk commonly believed myths about American politics - particularly the claim that Americans are deeply divided on fundamental political issues. His use of figures and statistics visually engages readers and dispels common misconceptions about politics. This text examines controversial topics such as abortion and homosexuality and finds that even on these issues 'culture war' is a myth."--Jacket

Other chapters explore community politics, the electoral process, religious institutions, and the advantages and disadvantages of contemporary advocacy politics. The book also probes the influence of long-term social and cultural changes on voluntary associations and civic participation."--Jacket

The personal vote : constituency service and electoral independence by Bruce E Cain( Book )
12 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and German and held by 617 libraries worldwide
Modern legislators are increasingly motivated to serve their constituents in personal ways. Representatives act like ultimate ombudsmen: they keep in close touch with their constituents and try to cultivate a relationship with them based on service and accessibility. The Personal Vote describes the behavior of representatives in the United States and Great Britain and the response of their constituents as well. It shows how congressmen and members of Parliament earn personalized support and how this attenuates their ties to national leaders and parties. The larger significance of this empirical work arises from its implications for the structure of legislative institutions and the nature of legislative action. Personalized electoral support correlates with decentralized governing institutions and special-interest policy making. Such systems tend to inconsistency and stalemate. The United States illustrates a mature case of this development, and Britain is showing the first movements in this direction with the decline of an established two-party system, the rise of a centrist third party, greater volatility in the vote, growing backbench independence and increasing backbench pressure for committees and staff. This book is essential for specialists in American national government, British politics, and comparative legislatures and comparative parties

Disconnect : the breakdown of representation in American politics by Morris P Fiorina( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 529 libraries worldwide
Drawing on polling results and other data, Fiorina examines the disconnect between an unrepresentative "political class" and the citizenry it purports to represent, showing how politicians have become more polarized while voters remain moderate; how politicians' rhetoric and activities reflect hot-button issues that are not public priorities; and how politicians' dogmatic, divisive, and uncivil style of "debate" contrasts with the more civil discourse of ordinary Americans, who tend to be more polite and open to compromise than their leaders."--[book jacket]

America's new democracy by Morris P Fiorina( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 230 libraries worldwide
This highly affordable text provides an engaging, analytical approach to American Government that stresses the importance of elections in our political system today. Written in a strong narrative voice and brimming with student-relevant examples, America's New Democracy provides a focused and stimulating treatment of politics in the United States. Illustrating popular influence across the political system in defense of a central theme--that elections matter more in America's political system todaythan they have in the past or do in other democracies--the book challenges the pessimistic view that government seldom listens to ordinary people. America's New Democracy encourages readers to see that in a system where votes are the main currency, both power and responsibility rest on the shoulders of all citizens
Can we talk? : the rise of rude, nasty, stubborn politics. ( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 143 libraries worldwide
To many, the angry protestors at town hall meetings, the death threats toward politicians, the inflammatory language online and over the airwaves, and the language of politician themselves are making America politics an ugly, mean-spirited, and nasty affair. Can We Talk? presents a dream team of scholars and journalists who ask: Is politics really as nasty as many news commentators perceive? What are forces are changing the political discourse and who is to blame? How will this change transform the very nature of our democracy? Civility in politics is one of the great issues of our day, making Can We Talk? a must-read for all students of American government

Foundations of the New American Democracy
Why are there so many divided Senate delegations? by Alberto Alesina( Book )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 33 libraries worldwide
The last three decades have witnessed a sharp increase in the number of states with spilt Senate delegations, featuring two senators of different parties. In addition, there is evidence that senators of different parties do not cluster in the middle: they are genuinely polarized. We propose a model which explains this phenomenon. Our argument builds upon the fact that when a Senate election is held, there is already a sitting senator. If the voters care about the policy position of their state delegation in each election, they may favor the candidate of the party which is not holding the other seat. We show that, in general: (1) a candidate benefits if the non-running senator is of the opposing parry; (2) the more extreme the position of the non-running senator, the more extreme may be the position of the opposing party candidate. Our 'opposite party advantage' hypothesis is tested on a sample including every Senate race from 1946 to 1986. After controlling for other important factors, such as incumbency advantage, coattails end economic conditions, we find reasonably strong evidence of the 'opposite party advantage.'

2 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"This work continues to offer a systematic account of what happens in congressional elections and demonstrates how electoral politics reflect and shape other components of our political system, with profound consequences for representative government." "Political scientist and author Gary C. Jacobson analyzes how congressional campaigns and elections reflect deeper structural patterns and currents in American political life and help determine how - and how well - we are governed. The book traces the connections between electoral politics in Congress and other important political phenomena and makes questions of representation and responsibility its chief normative concern."--Jacket
