The Democratic Faith by Paul M. Sniderman

The Democratic Faith: Essays on Democratic Citizenship (Castle Lectures Series) by Paul M. Sniderman
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.4 MB
Overview: Modern political science has concentrated on cataloguing voters’ failings-their lack of knowledge, tolerance, or consistency in political thinking. While it would be a mistake to think this portrait of citizens is simply wrong, it is a deeper mistake to accept it as a satisfactory likeness. In this book, Paul Sniderman demonstrates that a concentration on the pathologies of citizens’ political thinking has obscured the intense clash of opposing belief systems in the electorate. He shows how a concentration on racism has distorted understanding of the politics of race by keeping out of sight those who think well of black Americans. And he exposes the fallacy of spotlighting the dangers of mass politics while ignoring those of elite politics.

Remembering the German Democratic Republic: Divided Memory in a United Germany by David Clarke, Ute Wölfel
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.2 Mb
Overview: This interdisciplinary volume provides a range of perspectives on the collective memory of the German Democratic Republic in contemporary Germany. Individual essays examine the controversial commemoration of the victims of state socialism, memories of the GDR state’s institutions (e.g. The National People’s Army and the State Security Police), museums and the debates they inspire, the memories of the GDR’s former elites, memories of everyday life in the GDR, and the contested legacies of antifascism and socialism. Taken as a whole, the collection explores the parallels between coming to terms with the GDR past and continuing debates about memories of National Socialism.

Tip O’Neill and the Democratic Century by John A. Farrell

Tip O’Neill and the Democratic Century by John A. Farrell
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 948 KB
Overview: Award-winning New York Times Notable Book of the Year, national bestseller, and winner of the D.B. Hardeman prize, it is the definitive biography of the legendary Speaker of the House. To read this book is to revisit many of the greatest moments of late 20th-century American politics: colorful characters, grand triumphs, and bitter ideological wars during the rise and decline of Democratic politics.
When most modern political personas seem to be slick and elusive images fashioned by outside interests and partisan spinmasters, O’Neill’s legacy endures as a champion of the common man who never forgot where he came from. A garrulous legislative titan and rogue, he used the force of his personality to persuade his colleagues to work with him at a time when the government’s role as a protector of society was changing dramatically.
Given exclusive access to previously untapped resources, Farrell has written a rich, compelling work of narrative history and a model of the biographer’s art. It is an invaluable addition to the American political canon.
Genre: Non-Fiction > Biographies & Memoirs
