Описание: In this prize-winning book, a renowned political scientist debunks the commonly held myth that the American national government functions effectively only
when one political party controls the presidency and Congress. For this new edition, David R. Mayhew has provided a new Preface, a new appendix, and a new concluding chapter
that brings the historical narrative up to date.
Winner of the 1992 Richard E. Neustadt Prize given by the American Political Science Association for the best book on the
American presidency. "In this welcome updating of his agenda-setting classic, David Mayhew cogently defends his original methodology and finds that divided government remains no
less productive of important legislation than unified government.
Written with Mayhew's usual clarity and grace, this is a book to be enjoyed by beginning and veteran students
of Congress alike." Gary Jacobson, professor of political science, University of California, San Diego

Описание: This pioneering book reevaluates the place of converts from Judaism in the narrative of Jewish history. Long considered beyond the pale of Jewish historiography, converts played a central role in shaping both noxious and positive images of Jews and Judaism for Christian readers. Focusing on German Jews who converted to Christianity in the sixteenth through mid-eighteenth centuries, Elisheva Carlebach explores an extensive and previously unexamined trove of their memoirs and other writings. These fascinating original sources illuminate the Jewish communities that the converts left, the Christian society they entered, and the unabating tensions between the two worlds in early modern German history. The book begins with the medieval images of converts from Judaism and traces the hurdles to social acceptance that they encountered in Germany through early modern times. Carlebach examines the converts' complicated search for community, a quest that was to characterize much of Jewish modernity, and she concludes with a consideration of the converts' painful legacies to the Jewish experience in German lands. "Carlebach's reading of autobiographical texts by converts from Judaism is careful, intelligent, and skeptical--a model of how to treat spiritual memoirs."--Todd M. Endelman, University of Michigan "This superb book highlights the ambiguous identities of these boundary crossers and their impact on both German and Jewish self-definitions."--Paula E. Hyman, Yale University Elisheva Carlebach is professor of history at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She is the author of The Pursuit of Heresy: Rabbi Moses Hagiz and the Sabbatian Controversies, winner of the National Jewish Book Award for Jewish History, and coeditor of Jewish History and Jewish Memory.

Описание: Using history as a backdrop, author Craig Gottlieb offers a study of Gau Ehrenzeichen, or District Honor Badges. Although useful both as the first-ever collectors manual devoted exclusively to the subject, this study can also help historians understand the formative years of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) between 1923 and 1939. Drawing on his knowledge not only of the artefacts themselves, but on a keen understanding of the period, Gottlieb offers a unique view into the pre-war history of Nazi Germany. Using never-before-published photographs and drawing from private archives of original specimens of every badge and corresponding award document, Gottlieb answers two important questions: what is a Gau Ehrenzeichen, and why are they relevant to understanding Hitlers rise to power?
