     The Political System Matters: Social Psychology and Voting Behavior in Sweden and the United States (European Monographs in Social Psychology)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Donald Granberg, S�ren Holmberg

Originally published in 1988, this book asks the question, how does the political system affect the behaviour of individuals? Donald Granberg and S�ren Holmberg use long-term cross-sectional and panel national surveys of electorates in two very different democratic systems - Sweden and the United States - to examine an issue that has implications for our understanding of both social and psychological processes and also political systems in general. Their interdisciplinary and comparative survey considers such topics as ideological perception of abstract and concrete issues at the party and individual level; the polarisation, interrelation and transitivity of attitudes; the relationship between intention and behaviour; and the ways in which behaviour may be predicted. The book offers a detailed and convincing analysis of the interaction of political context with social psychological processes. It will be of interest not only to social, political and comparative psychologists, but also to all researchers with an interest in electoral behaviour.

     Invisible Enemies: The American War on Vietnam, 1975-2000 (Culture, Politics, and the Cold War)
Publisher: Univ. of Massachusetts Press
Author(s): Edwin A. Martini

Beginning where most histories of the Vietnam War end, Invisible Enemies examines the relationship between the United States and Vietnam following the American pullout in 1975. Drawing on a broad range of sources, from White House documents and congressional hearings to comic books and feature films, Edwin Martini shows how the United States continued to wage war on Vietnam "by other means" for another twenty-five years. In addition to imposing an extensive program of economic sanctions, the United States opposed Vietnam�?s membership in the United Nations, supported the Cambodians, including the Khmer Rouge, in their decade-long war with the Vietnamese, and insisted that Vietnam provide a "full accounting" of American MIAs before diplomatic relations could be established. According to Martini, such policies not only worked against some of the stated goals of U.S. foreign policy, they were also in opposition to the corporate economic interests that ultimately played a key role in normalizing relations between the two nations in the late 1990s.

Martini reinforces his assessment of American diplomacy with an analysis of the "cultural front"�?the movies, myths, memorials, and other phenomena that supported continuing hostility toward Vietnam while silencing opposing views of the war and its legacies. He thus demonstrates that the "American War on Vietnam" was as much a battle for the cultural memory of the war within the United States as it was a lengthy economic, political, and diplomatic campaign to punish a former adversary.

     The Essential Herman Kahn: In Defense of Thinking
Publisher: Lexington Books
Author(s): Paul Dragos Aligica, Kenneth R. Weinstein

By the time of his untimely death in 1983, Herman Kahn was recognized by both friends and intellectual adversaries as 'one of the world's most creative and best minds.' The current growing resurgence of interest in Kahn's ideas and intellectual legacy demonstrates the enduring relevance of his work. Yet, in spite of the constant influence of his arguments, there is a shortage of books summarizing Kahn's essential contributions, and thus his work is not as well known as it should be. The Essential Herman Kahn is an attempt to cope with this predicament and offer the public for the first time an anthology consisting of the essence of Kahn's work, organized thematically. The two decades that have passed since his death allow us today to approach his work undisturbed by the 'sound and fury' of the many public debates and controversies he participated in and to focus on some of the deepest and most enduring dimensions of his intellectual contributions. The anthology will try to bring together, out of the several thousands pages published by Kahn during his life, the 'essential Kahn,' the most relevant, consequential and interesting themes, ideas and arguments defining his legacy. As such it will met the needs of those who are interested in Kahn's work but do not have the time and energy to access his out-of-print books, to make their way through the voluminous number of pages, and then to sort out the essential from the accidental, the perennial from the contextual.

     Third-Party Matters: Politics, Presidents, and Third Parties in American History
Publisher: Praeger
Author(s): Donald J. Green

Third parties have been a fixture in the American political landscape since the beginning of the two-party system. More than 300 of these groups have surfaced, but only a handful have made a real difference. Third-Party Matters: Politics, Presidents, and Third Parties in American History tells the intriguing stories of those 11 parties, starting with the antislavery Liberty Party of 1840.

The parties deemed worthy of inclusion were selected because they met at least one of three criteria. They were spoilers who changed the outcome of an election, they had an important influence on government policy or the future of politics, and/or they had popular appeal, attracting at least ten percent of the vote. This investigation reveals the background behind each party's rise, what it stood for, who its leaders were?including larger-than-life personalities like Teddy Roosevelt, George Wallace, and Ross Perot?and the ultimate outcome of the election(s) in which the party participated.

     Elections: debating the 1976 debates: establishing a tradition of negotiations.: An article from: Presidential Studies Quarterly
Publisher: Thomson Gale
Author(s): John W. Self

This digital document is an article from Presidential Studies Quarterly, published by Thomson Gale on June 1, 2007. The length of the article is 9544 words.

From the author: The 1976 presidential campaign brought televised presidential debates back to the presidential campaign after a 16-year absence. Like every presidential campaign debate, the 1976 debates were carefully planned and negotiated before they aired in the fall. The negotiators, much like the negotiators in 1960, gained control of the negotiations as well as the debates. This article culls together information from many sources to reveal how the 1976 debates were negotiated between the Ford and Carter campaigns as well as the League of Women Voters. This article is part of a larger project to develop a theory of presidential debate negotiation.

     Statistics in Geography: A Practical Approach - Revised with 17 Programs
Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
Author(s): David Ebdon

Statistics in Geography has established itself as the best introductory textbook on the subject: the author makes statistical concepts and techniques intellible and their applications in a wide variety of problems comprehensible, even exciting. The main feature of this much-awaited new edition is a set of 17 computer programs (with sample outputs) that cover nearly all the statistical techniques described. These have been carefully written to be user-friendly in an elementary subset of Basic to make them simple to implement on most micro computers. This means students can be more adventurous in their applications and interpretations of statistical techniques. The author has, at the same time, retained all the worked examples in the book so that the reader can gain insight into the logic of the methds by working through them by hand. These, together with problems of various levels of complexity plus comprehensive answers at the back of the book, provide the student with a clear and thorough understanding of both the methods and their potential applications.

     Organizations and Environments (Stanford Business Classics)
Publisher: Stanford Business Books
Author(s): Howard Aldrich

When Organizations and Environments was originally issued in 1979, it increased interest in evolutionary explanations of organizational change. Since then, scholars and practitioners have widely cited the book for its innovative answer to this question: Under what conditions do organizations change?

Aldrich achieves theoretical integration across 13 chapters by using an evolutionary model that captures the essential features of relations between organizations and their environments. This model explains organizational change by focusing on the processes of variation, selection, retention, and struggle. The �environment,? as conceived by Aldrich, does not refer simply to elements �out there?�beyond a set of focal organizations�but rather to concentrations of resources, power, political domination, and most concretely, other organizations.

Scholars using Aldrich?s model have examined the societal context within which founders create organizations and whether those organizations survive or fail, rise to prominence, or sink into obscurity.

A preface to the reprinted edition frames the utility of this classic for tomorrow?s researchers and businesspeople.
