22 Krieger, Joel THE OXFORD COMPANION TO POLITICS OF THE WORLD
Oxford University Press 1993 0195059344 / 9780195059342 Hardcover Good/Good 
Will the end of superpower rivalry bring greater international harmony--or more volatile and dangerously unpredictable conflicts? Where two massive sp heres of influence once divided the globe, now regional conflicts erupt int o scenes of tragedy and confusion. In Africa, the new Europe, Asia, and the Americas, nations chart a bold course toward democracy. But they cannot br eak free of old divisions, as ethnic nationalism emerges amidst economic de vastation. Indeed, nations everywhere, however powerful, are buffeted on ev ery side. Their sovereignty is checked by the global economy as well as pow erful regional economic and political blocs. At a time of exceptional ferme nt, Oxford is pleased to present the most authoritative, timely, in-depth r eference available for understanding the people, nations, conflicts, moveme nts, institutions, and issues that dominate the world political stage. Edited by a team of eminent political scientists, The Oxford Companion to P olitics of the World provides readers the depth of coverage, the historical contexts, and the richness of interpretation needed to come to terms with today's volatile international scene. Drawing on the insights of nearly 500 authors from more than 40 countries, the volume provides comprehensive cov erage of international affairs and domestic politics throughout the world. Articles discuss virtually every nation in the world, and include extensive information on institutions, political parties, leaders, and the sources of political mobilization and conflict.

It illuminates the ways beliefs and values come to dominate official problem frames and get entrenched in institutions.

MORAL POLITICS: WHAT CONSERVATIVES KNOW THAT LIBERALS DON'T, Lakoff, George
24 Lakoff, George MORAL POLITICS: WHAT CONSERVATIVES KNOW THAT LIBERALS DON'T
University Of Chicago Press 1997 0226468054 / 9780226468051 Paperback Very Good 
Moral Politics takes a fresh look at how we think and talk about political and moral ideas. George Lakoff analyzed recent political discussion to find that the family-especially the ideal family-is the most powerful metaphor in politics today. Revealing how family-based moral values determine views on diverse issues as crime, gun control, taxation, social programs, and the environment, George Lakoff looks at how conservatives and liberals link mo rality to politics through the concept of family and how these ideals diver ge. Arguing that conservatives have exploited the connection between morali ty, the family, and politics, while liberals have failed to recognized it, Lakoff explains why conservative moral position has not been effectively ch allenged. A wake up call to political pundits on both the left and the righ t, this work redefines how Americans think and talk about politics.

28 Morris, Dick CATASTROPHE
Harper 2009 006177104X / 9780061771040 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
We have to stop Obama's radical agenda. Now. We must act before President Barack Obama fully implements his radical poli tical agenda. Because after Obama has won his war on prosperity and cancele d the war on terror, it will be too late to regain our liberty or our secur ity. Here's the truth about Obama and his radical policies: He will destroy our health care system so that no one gets adequate care. He firmly believes in government control of our major industries-he's alrea dy commandeered the banks and the automobile industry. He plans to reshape the political landscape to keep the left in power for d ecades by cooking the census, enfranchising illegal immigrants, muzzling ta lk radio, and coercing workers into unions. He is attacking those who fight terrorism while letting the terrorists go f ree. He has repealed the Declaration of Independence and put us under a worldwid e, European-dominated financial regulatory system. And Obama is not working alone. Congress is complicit in the conspiracy. It's a catastrophe. But as Dick Morris and Eileen McGann remind us, "This is no time for apathy or alienation or hopelessness. It's a time for action." And that action must begin now-before it's too late. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Allen Lane 2011 1846142350 / 9781846142352 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "How the West was Lost" charts how over the last 50 years the most advanced and advantaged countries of the world have squandered their dominant position through a sustained catalogue of fundamentally flawed economic policies. It is these decisions that, along the way, have resulted in an economic and geo-political see-saw, which is now poised to tip in favour of the emerging world. By forging closer ties with the emerging economies, rethinking trade barriers, overhauling their tax systems to encourage savings rather than ravenous consumption, and specifically addressing the three essential ingredients for growth (capital, labour and technology) it might yet still be possible for the West to firmly get back in the race.

33 O'Reilly, Bill THE O'REILLY FACTOR: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS IN AM ERICAN LIFE
Broadway 2000 0767905288 / 9780767905282 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A highly collectible, tight clean first edition, protected in a new brodart wrapper,unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. The O'Reilly Factor isn't just the name of Bill O'Reilly's popular talk show on the Fox News Channel anymore--it's also the title of his book, which, appropriately enough, actually reads like a TV show. The narrative rarely proceeds for more than a few paragraphs before a bold-faced "This Just In" or "Bulletin" pops up on the page and breaks the stream of thought--sort of like a commercial interruption. This provides an ideal forum for O'Reilly to sound off on any number of topics with lots of verve but not too much depth. There are breezy chapters here on money, media, religion, race, and sex, among others. O'Reilly dislikes many things, and he isn't shy about sharing his opinions: "SUVs should be immediately outlawed," he rants. Here's O'Reilly on President Clinton: "What a ridiculous waste!" Attorney General Janet Reno is a "ridiculous, incompetent woman" and President Clinton's "primary 'enabler.'"

38 Peters, Editor) B. Guy (Author REPRESENTATIVE BUREAUCRACY IN ACTION: COUNTRY PROFILES FROM THE AMERICAS, E UROPE, AFRICA AND ASIA
Edward Elgar Pub 2013 0857935984 / 9780857935984 Hardcover Very Good 
'This volume confronts one of the most central issues in the study and prac tice of bureaucracy. Questions about representativeness of public instituti ons raises key issues about legitimacy, especially in contexts characterise d by ethnic diversity and cleavages. Debates are shaped by normatively info rmed positions that contrasts those in favour of representativeness with th ose who point to limitations and side-effects. This volume offers a set of important contributions to these debates by linking the long-standing debat es about representative bureaucracy with an impressive range of country stu dies. This volume is a fundamental contribution to the theme of representat ive bureaucracy.' - Martin Lodge, London School of Economics, UK The book explores one of the most topical issues of public bureaucracies wo rldwide: the relationship between the composition of the public sector work force and the nature of the society it serves. Taking a comparative and analytical perspective, the authoritatively, yet a ccessibly written, country chapters show how salient the politics of repres entativeness have become in increasingly diverse societies. At the same tim e, they illustrate the wide variety of practice based on different politica l systems, administrative structures, and cultural settings. Providing comprehensive up-to-date information and analysis, these studies will interest scholars and practitioners alike, from comparative public administration and management, government, public policy, and diversity studies.

40 Scarborough, Joe THE RIGHT PATH: FROM IKE TO REAGAN, HOW REPUBLICANS ONCE MASTERED POLITICS- -AND CAN AGAIN
Random House 2013 0812996143 / 9780812996142 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Joe Scarborough--former Republican congressman and the always insightful ho st of MSNBC's Morning Joe--takes a nuanced and surprising look at the unexp ected rise and self-inflicted fall of the Republican Party. Dominant in nat ional politics for forty years under the influence of the conservative but pragmatic leadership of Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, the GOP, Scarb orough argues, is in a self-inflicted eclipse. The only way forward? Recove r the principled realism of the giants who led the party to greatness. In the aftermath of Lyndon Johnson's 1964 landslide, the Republican Party a ppeared to be on the verge of permanent irrelevance. LBJ's Great Society wa s institutionalizing sweeping liberal reforms, and the United States had a thriving, prosperous economy. Yet in an instant everything changed, and the next four decades would witness an unprecedented era of Republican ascenda ncy. What happened? In The Right Path, Joe Scarborough looks back in time to discern how Republ icans once dominated American public life. From Eisenhower's refusal to let "the perfect be the enemy of the good" to Reagan's charismatic but resolut ely practical genius, Scarborough shows how principled pragmatism, combined with a commitment to core conservative values, led to victory after victor y. Now, however, political incalcitrance is threatening to turn a once-mighty party into a permanent minority. Opening with the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965--the high-water moment for liberalism-
