Implementation Of Early Voting, Lillard E. Richardson Jr., Grant W. Neeley Jul 1996

Implementation Of Early Voting, Lillard E. Richardson Jr., Grant W. Neeley

Political Science Faculty Publications

We examine the early voting process in Tennessee during the election of 1994. By conducting a mail survey of all 95 county registrars, we ascertained the methods and costs of early voting implementation. Generally, the survey reveals a strong belief that early voting encourages greater participation by voters, with turnout data supporting this belief. We find that the ballot type and location of early voting sites play an important role in determining both the costs of early voting and the rate of voter participation.

The War Of Words: Defining The Extreme Right Party Family, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

This article presents an overview of the writings on the extreme right party family of the third wave (1980–95). First, the prime criterion for the classification of the party family is discussed. Second, the main critiques of, and alternatives to, the term right‐wing extremism are evaluated. Third, the political parties that are generally considered to be members of the party family are identified. Fourth, subgroups within the larger party family are examined. In the conclusion, the various writings are structured on the basis of four theoretical schools within the broader study of right‐wing extremism.

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson Jan 1996

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Transboundary environmental problems do not distinguish between political boundaries. Global warming is expected to cause thermal expansion of water and melt glaciers. Both are predicted to lead to a rise in sea level. We must enlarge our paradigms to encompass a global reality and reliance upon global participation.

Black American Intellectuals In The 1990s, Edward L. Ayers Jan 1996

Black American Intellectuals In The 1990s, Edward L. Ayers

History Faculty Publications

As everyone who has followed the leading American periodicals in 1995 can tell you, a group of black academics has been much on the country's mind recently. Rather breathless articles have several times announced the arrival of America's New Public Intellectuals. One commentator argues that the recent burst of publishing and attention signals nothing less than the arrival of the Third Black Intellectual Renaissance, fit to be compared with those of the 1920s and the civil rights era.
