Voice and equality : civic voluntarism in American politics by Sidney Verba( Book )
20 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 852 libraries worldwide
This far-reaching analysis, based on an original survey of 15,000 individuals, including 2,500 long personal interviews, shows that some individuals have a greater voice in politics than others, and that this inequality results not just from varying inclinations toward activity, but also from unequal access to vital resources such as education. Citizens' voices are especially unequal when participation depends on contributions of money rather than contributions of time. This deeply researched study brilliantly illuminates the many facets of civic consciousness and action and confirms their quintessential role in American democracy

The Oxford handbook of political methodology ( Book )
21 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 456 libraries worldwide
Political methodology has changed dramatically over the past thirty years, and many new methods and techniques have been developed. Both the Political Methodology Society and the Qualitative/Multi-Methods Section of the American Political Science Association have engaged in ongoing research and training programs that have advanced quantitative and qualitative methodology. The Oxford Handbook of Political Methodology presents and synthesizes these developments. The Handbook provides comprehensive overviews of diverse methodological approaches, with an emphasis on three major themes. First, specific methodological tools should be at the service of improved conceptualization, comprehension of meaning, measurement, and data collection. They should increase analysts' leverage in reasoning about causal relationships and evaluating them empirically by contributing to powerful research designs. Second, the authors explore the many different ways of addressing these tasks: through case-studies and large-n designs, with both quantitative and qualitative data, and via techniques ranging from statistical modelling to process tracing. Finally, techniques can cut across traditional methodological boundaries and can be useful for many different kinds of researchers. Many of the authors thus explore how their methods can inform, and be used by, scholars engaged in diverse branches of methodology
The unheavenly chorus : unequal political voice and the broken promise of American democracy by Kay Lehman Schlozman( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 386 libraries worldwide
"Politically active individuals and organizations make huge investments of time, energy, and money to influence everything from election outcomes to congressional subcommittee hearings to local school politics, while other groups and individual citizens seem woefully underrepresented in our political system. The Unheavenly Chorus is the most comprehensive and systematic examination of political voice in America ever undertaken--and its findings are sobering. The Unheavenly Chorus is the first book to look at the political participation of individual citizens alongside the political advocacy of thousands of organized interests--membership associations such as unions, professional associations, trade associations, and citizens groups, as well as organizations like corporations, hospitals, and universities. Drawing on numerous in-depth surveys of members of the public as well as the largest database of interest organizations ever created--representing more than thirty-five thousand organizations over a twenty-five-year period--this book conclusively demonstrates that American democracy is marred by deeply ingrained and persistent class-based political inequality. The well educated and affluent are active in many ways to make their voices heard, while the less advantaged are not. This book reveals how the political voices of organized interests are even less representative than those of individuals, how political advantage is handed down across generations, how recruitment to political activity perpetuates and exaggerates existing biases, how political voice on the Internet replicates these inequalities--and more. In a true democracy, the preferences and needs of all citizens deserve equal consideration. Yet equal consideration is only possible with equal citizen voice. The Unheavenly Chorus reveals how far we really are from the democratic ideal and how hard it would be to attain it"--Publisher description

Expensive children in poor families : the intersection of childhood disabilities and welfare by Marcia K Meyers( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
This book provides new estimates of the private costs and public effects of childhood disabilities among welfare recipients. Based on over 2,000 interviews conducted between 1992-96 with household heads in 3 California counties, the estimates cover direct expenditures by families and indirect costs from employment reductions. The study finds that poor parents with disabled children often face tradeoffs between meeting the special needs of their children or meeting the basic needs of their families, and between working or caring for their children. After examining participation rates in public assistance programs, the book estimates the likelihood that families with disabled children will exit these programs to independence. Concluding that public assistance may be an essential part of an income-packaging strategy for these families, the book maintains that government can move these families toward independence by providing employment-related support services and by adopting welfare eligibility rules that permit families to package earnings with continued ssi, welfare, Food Stamp, and health insurance assistance. The eight chapters are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Poor Families with Expensive Children"; (3) "Measuring Disabilities and Costs"; (4) "Data and Methods"; (5) "The Private Costs of Care" (6) "The Public Costs of Care"; (7) "Public Programs and Private Well-Being"; and (8) "Conclusions and Policy Implications." Four appendixes contain data on: maternal employment estimation, event history analysis of welfare transitions, hardship estimation, and disability measures. (Contains 85 bibliographic references.)

American Citizen Participation Study, 1990 by Sidney Verba( file )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This study was designed to examine political and nonpolitical civic participation in the United States. Respondents were asked to comment on various topics, including their interest in politics and their party identification, voting status, and activity in community politics. In addition, respondents were asked about their campaign activities, including the kind of work they had done, and how much money and time they had contributed to campaigns for various elections. Respondents also provided information about their own personal experiences with government programs, as well as their opinions on national and social problems in the United States and why people in the United States aren't more active in politics. Demographic variables measured in this study include respondent's educational background, occupation, church activity and religious affiliation, race and ethnicity, age, gender, and union membership
Letting the people decide : dynamics of a Canadian election by Richard Johnston( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
This book explores the dynamics of political campaigns in general by attempting to make sense of the specific events of the 1988 Canadian election campaign. The authors had a sophisticated research design in place when the Canadian elections were called. For the sixty days of the campaign, they tracked responses that enabled them to answer such questions as: Do the various elements of a campaign - parties, leaders, issues, campaign rhetoric, debates, advertising, polls - make a difference in electoral results? How do perceptions of leaders affect the public's judgment on issues? How does national and electoral history affect campaign strategy? Their findings contradict those of many earlier studies and are likely to spark a lively debate and a new kind of research on such questions. The authors argue that the election of 1988 became, in large part, a referendum on the Free Trade Association with the United States. Partly for this reason but primarily because of the book's methodological rigor and novel findings, it will have an audience in the United States well beyond the circle of those interested in Canadian elections per se. Combining existing scholarly literature, historical data, theoretical breadth, analytic innovation, and, most important, their own rich and extensive survey data, the authors come to three main conclusions. The first is that the events of a campaign do have an impact on the final vote. Journalists and candidates take this as a fundamental premise, but until recently, few political scientists concurred. Campaigns, it has long been argued, at most reminded voters about fundamental issues (such as the economy) and voters' long-term predispositions. Second, the authors assert that history sets the stage for campaigns and constrains their possibilities. Some constraints are shown to be more binding than others and some historical periods to impose more constraints than others. This analysis leads to the construction of a general theory of campaigns, one that can predict when campaigns will and will not be important. Third, the authors conclude that campaigns can do more than determine which party will hold power; they can also be the occasion for a fundamental realignment. The authors support this view by reference both to their research results and to basic theories of social choice

The Washington Representatives Study includes information about thousands of organizations involved in Washington D.C. politics, their organizational characteristics including the kinds of interests they represented and the nature of their membership, if any, and the activities they undertook in the pursuit of policy influence. This collection encompasses all organizations listed in the Washington Representatives directories (published by Columbia Books) for 1981, 1991, 2001, 2006, and 2011 as being active in national politics by virtue of either having an office in the D.C. area, or hiring D.C.-area consultants or counsel to represent them. These organizations have been classified into 96 categories based, principally, on the kinds of interests represented. Variables include organization name, membership category, founding year, and main objective, as well as number of lobbyists hired, number of amicus briefs filed, political action committee (PAC) donations made, and web-based lobbying activities
