This three-volume set explores the multiple roles that parties and interest groups have played in American politics from the nation's beginnings to the present. • Provides expert analysis of the emergence and effect of parties and interest groups on the American political system • Offers a broader and more complete understanding of both parties and interest groups in American politics than has been offered previously • Helps readers to move beyond an event-driven knowledge of parties and interest groups to explore the systematic and structural bases for interest group and party behavior • Includes primary source documents that allow readers to discover for themselves the means by which groups or parties place items on the public agenda and thereby come to (or sometimes fail to) shape our governmental system
Women and Politics examines the pursuit of gender equality from two viewpoints: the legal equality doctrine, which emphasizes gender neutrality, and the fairness doctrine, which recognizes differences between men and women. In-depth analysis and clear presentation of theory and history helps students to think critically about gender and about the challenges faced by women in the past and present. Extensive coverage of diversity among women and consistent attention to the intersections of race, class, and gender are integral to the text's main theme.

This extremely coherent and balanced presentation supplies a deeper, more solid intellectual framework for analyzing and questioning legal doctrines and policies as they pertain to sexual discrimination. Special features include: emphasizing alternative, often competing, perspectives, Bartlett and Harris organize their book around the major theoretical models for conceptualizing the relationship between gender and law, including: formal equality; substantive equality; nonsubordination or dominance theory; different voice theory; autonomy; and anti-essentialism. 'Putting theory into practice' sections in every chapter provide concrete problems that ask students to apply the different theoretical models studied. New cases and materials in every section include: sexual harassment; discrimination based on sexual orientation; glas ceiling issues; judicial bias; pregnancy and employment; and rape and domestic violence. A solid and reliable Teacher's Manual provides analysis, supplementary materials, case citations and other sources relating To The book's problems, notes, and questions. For current, candid, and intellectually rigorous approach To The field, use the new edition of a casebook that has proved its quality over time; GENDER AND LAW: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Second Edition.
