Description : When the Democrats retook control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2007 after twelve years in the wilderness, Nancy Pelosi became the first woman speaker in American history. In Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the New American Politics, Ron Peters, one of America's leading scholars of Congress, and Cindy Simon Rosenthal, one of America's leading scholars on women and political leadership, provide a comprehensive account of how Pelosi became speaker and what this tells us about Congress in the twenty-first century. They consider the key issues that Pelosi's rise presents for American politics, highlight the core themes that have shaped, and continue to shape, her remarkable caree, and discuss the challenges that women face in the male-dominated world of American politics, particularly at its highest levels. The authors also shed light on Pelosi's political background: first as the scion of a powerful Baltimore political family whose power base lay in East Coast urban ethnic politics, and later as a successful politician in what is probably the most liberal city in the country, San Francisco. Peters and Rosenthal trace how she built her base within the House Democratic Caucus and ultimately consolidated enough power to win the Speakership. They show how twelve years out of power allowed her to fashion a new image for House Democrats, and they conclude with an analysis of her institutional leadership style. The only full-length portrait of Nancy Pelosi in print, this superb volume offers a vivid and insightful analysis of one of America's most remarkable politicians.

Description : Bradshaw and Pring - both Clerks at Westminster - wrote a well-received study of Parliament and Congress (1972, new ed 1980). Much has happened since then, both in politics and to the institutions. The present work is an entirely fresh look at the two legislatures. Though their constitutional positions and development are quite distinct, they nevertheless have much in common historically and face many of the same contemporary problems. The authors' views of theprocesses and problems of Congress and Parliament rest on their respective careers - in both cases over some forty years - as senior and impartial officers of the House of Representatives and the House of Commons with first-hand experience of the two major institutions. That experience has enabledthem to judge the prospects for Congress and Parliament without political partiality but with understanding of the complex interplay of politics and procedure which is everyday life on Capitol Hill and at Westminster.

Description : Medical student turned professional soldier, David S. Stanley offered forty years of service to his country on the western frontier and during the Civil War. He participated in some of most important Civil War battles, including, the Battle of Iuka, Battle of Corinth, Battle of Stones Rivers, Battle of Resaca, Battle of Spring Hill, and the Battle of Franklin. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at Franklin where he was shot while rallying his troops. A brave and professional soldier, Stanley was a complex individual exhibiting concern for his soldiers and showing ferocity in battle. As Rosecrans' Chief of Cavalry, he deserves much credit for making the Union cavalry an important and formidable power in the Western Theater. He also commanded the IV Army Corps at the end of the war, all the while, a convert to Roman Catholicism, greatly influenced by his religious beliefs. Stanley was a formidable adversary of his enemies and he clashed with William T. Sherman, Jacob Cox and William B. Hazen. His own battle with alcohol makes him one of the more interesting generals of the Civil War era.
