The Assessment Of Political Personality: A Psychodiagnostically Relevant Conceptualization And Methodology, Aubrey Immelman Dec 1993

The Assessment Of Political Personality: A Psychodiagnostically Relevant Conceptualization And Methodology, Aubrey Immelman

Psychology Faculty Publications

The purpose of this article is to narrow the conceptual and methodological gap between existing formulations in psychodiagnostic theory and current practice in political personality. It is suggested that accurate assessment of the personalities of high-level leaders can significantly improve the prediction of political outcomes but that this endeavor has been hampered by inadequate transposition from the source disciplines of personality theory and psychodiagnostics to the target discipline of contemporary political psychology. It is proposed that Theodore Millon’s personological model offers a viable integrative framework for the study of political personality. The present article explicates Millon’s model, specifies ...

Anchoring The French Voter: Ideology Versus Party, Christopher J. Fleury, Michael S. Lewis-Beck Nov 1993

Anchoring The French Voter: Ideology Versus Party, Christopher J. Fleury, Michael S. Lewis-Beck

Department of Political Science Publications

In their pivotal 1986 volume, Converse and Pierce rekindle the debate over whether left-right ideological attachment or party identification serves as the psychological anchor of the French electorate. They argue that, much like Americans, French voters use partisanship to orient themselves to the political landscape. Our study, which employs the data used by Converse and Pierce, draws a different conclusion. We find that ideology, in terms of both scope and strength, clearly exceeds party in its importance for vote choice.

Regional Subcultures Of The United States, Joel A. Lieske Nov 1993

Regional Subcultures Of The United States, Joel A. Lieske

Political Science Faculty Publications

This study develops the case, theory, and statistical methodology for a new measure of American regional subcultures. Using principal component and cluster analysis on some 45 measures of racial origin, ethnic ancestry, religious affiliation, and social structure, I show how the entire population of U.S. counties can be partitioned into 10 distinctive, regional subcultures that are relatively homogeneous and contiguous. Next, I identify the cultural characteristics of each subculture and relate my new classification scheme to the work of Elazar, Gastil, Garreau, and Fischer. Finally, I compare the relative utility of this new measure with Elazar's typology in ...

Introduction To Marx And Modern Political Theory: From Hobbes To Contemporary Feminism, Philip J. Kain Oct 1993

Introduction To Marx And Modern Political Theory: From Hobbes To Contemporary Feminism, Philip J. Kain

Philosophy

I first began to study Marx some twenty-three years ago. In those days there were many things that made it easy to become interested in Marx: among them the political ferment of the late 1960s and the fact that at the University of California at San Diego, where I was a graduate student, there were several important and interesting Marxists - Fredric Jameson, Herbert Marcuse, and Stanley Moore. The latter two were my teachers in the Philosophy Department, and the latter, to whom this book is dedicated, became my dissertation director. Moreover, the spirit of Marx was in the air and ...

Islam Vs. Liberalism In Europe, Peter O'Brien Oct 1993

Islam Vs. Liberalism In Europe, Peter O'Brien

Political Science Faculty Research

In the West, Muslims are regarded with anxiety, mistrust, and fear. Many of us choose not to travel to Muslim countries for fear of becoming victims of terrorism. Most westerners worry about the Muslims' firm grip on the spigot of the world's oil reserves. And in 1991 we convinced ourselves that Saddam Hussein represented a threat on par with Hitler.1

But Muslims cannot really scare us. After all, it took but a few weeks to vanquish fully the "Butcher of Baghdad," who had up until that time the world's fourth largest army. We united in a stalwart ...

Soviet And Post-Soviet Environmental Problems, Stephen R. Bowers Jul 1993

Soviet And Post-Soviet Environmental Problems, Stephen R. Bowers

Faculty Publications and Presentations

With the collapse of Communist power in the Soviet Union, considerable attention has focused on the lessons produced by the experiment with Marxist socialism in the Russian empire and what we might regard as the legacies of Communism. One of the most highly visible legacies of that system is a pattern of environmental neglect that stretches from the Baltics to the Kamchatka peninsula. As a public issue, ecology only emerged in the final years of communist rule in the USSR, initially as part of Gorbachev's glasnost and, later, as a component of the country's increasingly vocal nationalist movements ...

The State, Civil Society, And Citizenship, Richard Dagger Jul 1993

The State, Civil Society, And Citizenship, Richard Dagger

Political Science Faculty Publications

In large, modern societies, then, we should make the most of "partial societies" by encouraging the development of a vital civil society--a sphere of life that promotes freedom through private activity and the voluntary associations that serve as a buffer between individuals and the state. Indeed, the question is not whether civil society is a prerequisite for a good society, but what form it should take. With this in mind, I want to offer three observations about the proper form of civil society.


A Millon-Based Study Of Political Personality: Nelson Mandela And F. W. De Klerk -- Part I: Method And Preliminary Results, Aubrey Immelman Jul 1993

A Millon-Based Study Of Political Personality: Nelson Mandela And F. W. De Klerk -- Part I: Method And Preliminary Results, Aubrey Immelman

Psychology Faculty Publications

This paper reports the method and preliminary findings of an investigation of the political personalities of South African president F.W. de Klerk and African National Congress president Nelson Mandela. The purpose of the study was to assess the utility of Theodore Millon’s personological model as an alternative or supplementary conceptual framework and methodology for the assessment of political personality. Conceptually, the investigation was conducted from the perspective of a model of personality compatible with Axis II of DSM-III-R, which serves as an important psychodiagnostic frame of reference for the practice of contemporary psychiatry and clinical psychology. Methodologically, the ...

Ethnic Political Power In A Machine City: Chicago's Poles At Rainbow's End, Tomasz Inglot, John P. Pelissero Jun 1993

Ethnic Political Power In A Machine City: Chicago's Poles At Rainbow's End, Tomasz Inglot, John P. Pelissero

Political Science: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Machine politics in Chicago has been described as a successful example of exchange theory in which political party members received benefits in return for loyalty to the party. In 1988, Erie rejected the rainbow theory of machine politics, arguing that the Irish received the lion's share of political benefits while other white-ethnic groups, such as Poles, were given limited and often symbolic rewards. These authors show that Chicago's Poles were not fully incorporated into the rainbow of groups that benefited from and supported the machine. This led to a pattern of independence in voting and lends considerable support ...


Collective Security In The Gulf: An Analysis Of The Development Of The Gulf Cooperation Council And Regional Security As A Function Of The Council, David Michael Priess '93 May 1993

Collective Security In The Gulf: An Analysis Of The Development Of The Gulf Cooperation Council And Regional Security As A Function Of The Council, David Michael Priess '93

Honors Projects

The region today referred to as the Middle East has always interested the greatest world empires. From the times of Alexander the Great through those of the Roman Empire, the Arab expansion, the Mongols, the Ottomans, and indeed right up to the present, this area at the crossroads of three continents has drawn the attention and interference of foreign peoples. Some of them came to conquer, others simply to pass through on their way to other locales, but all considered the area in some way important to their imperial and/or commercial goals and aspirations.

Ideological Patterns In The Justices' Voting In The Burger Court's Business Cases, Timothy M. Hagle, Harold J. Spaeth May 1993

Ideological Patterns In The Justices' Voting In The Burger Court's Business Cases, Timothy M. Hagle, Harold J. Spaeth

Department of Political Science Publications

Recent research has shown that economic liberalism no longer explains the Burger Court's business decisions. To discover what does, Hagle and Spaeth (1992) systematically analyzed the universe of Burger Court business decisions and found that a small set of ideological variables, which they labeled "instrumental libertarianism" accounted for most of these decisions. To supplement our 1992 study, we have constructed optimal models for the 10 most frequently participating Burger Court justices. These vary little from that of the Court. The three most antibusiness justices support governmental regulation, as do the two probusiness states' righters. Three justices are libertarians, one ...
