9780195056051: The Decline and Fall of the Liberal Republicans: From 1952 to the Present

Showing how changes in electoral behavior, party structures and candidate appeal have contributed to the decline of liberal Republicans, Rae here demonstrates how these changes permitted conservatives to gain control of the GOP. He also discusses party factionalism and the rise of new
political elites.

About the Author:

Nicol C. Rae, Professor of Political Science, Florida International University.

Review:

"Excellent....Rae says a lot, he says it well, and what he says is well worth saying."--Journal of Politics

"A fine account of the liberals' decline....Historians will laud his patient scholarship and excellent choice of source materials over some thirty years of American political life."--Annals of the American Academy

"Books about American party factions are rare; so, this study of the modern liberal Republicans is a welcome addition to the literature. ... Rae's handling of the material is skilful, the attention to detail careful. The approach is an orthodox institutional one." American Politics
Review

"This useful study fills an important gap in the literature on the Republican party in the modern era."--History

"His lucidly written analysis is based on a wealth of interviews and secondary sources, and is especially informative on myriad, often short-lived, organizations that liberal Republicans have founded and abandoned over the years....Recommended for all academic libraries."--Choice

"A penetrating study of the largely ignored subject of liberal Republicans....Highly recommended for all academic libraries."--Library Journal

"Provide[s] an excellent narrative history of a 'once-dominant faction (liberal Republicans) within a major U.S. political party'."--Journal of Policy History

"Provide[s] an excellent narrative history of a `once-dominant faction (liberal Republicans) within a major U.S. political party'."--Journal of Policy History

"An excellent book helping to understand the possible `realignment' that is occuring in America."--Dr. Thomas J. Williams, University of Alabama
