Journal of Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society2016/2: Violence in the Post-Soviet Space【電子書籍】[ Andreas Umland ]

The issue

A framework operationalizing the components of political spectacle anchors the analysis treating emotions, affect transfer

Color CodedParty Politics in the American West, 1950?2016【電子書籍】[ Walter Nugent ]

<p>The now?staunchly red state of Texas was deep blue in 1950 and had virtually no functioning Republican Party. California, on the other hand, was reliably red. Today, both states have jumped to the opposite end of the political spectrum. Texas is one of the most conservative states, while California has become one of today’s most liberal bastions. These are the most dramatic cases, but notable shifts in voting patterns have occurred throughout the western states in recent decadesーshifts so var

The authors explore different aspects of the interconnectedness of Warsaw and

Trumping Politics as UsualMasculinity, Misogyny, and the 2016 Elections【電子書籍】[ Robert G. Boatright ]

<p>In many elections, candidates frame their appeals in gendered ways--they compete, for instance, over who is more "masculine." This is the case for male and female candidates alike. In the 2016 presidential election, however, the stark choice between the first major-party female candidate and a man who exhibited a persistent pattern of misogyny made the use of gender more prominent than in any previous election in the United States. Presidential campaigns often have an impact on downballot Con

One point lays beyond dispute: Donald Trump defied the odds, whether set by bookmakers or political pundits, or pollstrers .</p> <p>In this bookーas they have for every presidential election since 1992ーJames Ceaser, Andrew Busch, and John Pitney revisit the race for the presidency and cong
Catholics and US Politics After the 2016 ElectionsUnderstanding the “Swing Vote"【電子書籍】

Catholics and US Politics After the 2016 ElectionsUnderstanding the “Swing Vote"【電子書籍】

<p>This book examines both the evolution of the Catholic vote in the US and the role of Catholic voters in the historic 2016 elections. There is a paucity of academic works on Catholics and US politicsーscholars of religion and US politics tend to focus on evangelical Protestant votersーeven though Catholics are widely considered the swing vote in national elections. The 2016 presidential election proves that the swing vote component of that group matters in close elections. What Trump gained from
