Sadat's Egypt and Teng's China: Revolution Versus Modernization
Raphael Israeli analyzes the processes of modernization and revolution, which he regards as displacing each other in a cyclical fashion in non-Western societies. He uses case studies of Sadat's Egypt and Teng's China to illustrate the theory and to argue that the transition from modernization to revolution and vice versa hinge upon certain types of leaders.

pp. 361-371
 

Majority Leadership in the House of Representatives
Sidney Waldman reviews the role of the majority-party leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives in light of the House reforms of the past decade. He contends that notwithstanding some new leadership powers and resources, House reforms on balance have contributed to member independence.

pp. 373-393
 

Presidential Management of Budgetary and Fiscal Policymaking
David C. Mowery, Mark S. Kamlet, AND John P. Crecine examine presidential management of three parallel executive branch budgetary policy processes-domestic budgeting, defense budgeting, and fiscal policy. After surveying the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations, the authors offer recommendations on how a president can balance the competing demands of fiscal and budgetary policy planning.

pp. 395-425
 

American Reaction to Soviet Aircraft in Cuba, 1962 and 1978
Raymond L. Garthoff draws on his own experience in the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 to illuminate the understanding reached between the United States and the Soviet Union on aircraft as offensive weapons. He concludes that the introduction of new Soviet aircraft into Cuba in 1978 was not inconsistent with the 1962 understanding.

Social Targeting in Community Development
Paul R. Dommel looks at the distribution of program benefits among income groups over the first four years of the community development block grant program. He finds that benefits to lower-income groups increased as the program progressed but concludes that further large increases in benefits to the lower income groups are unlikely.

pp. 465-478
 

The New Regulation of Health and Safety
K. Robert Keiser contends that health and safety regulatory agencies are more likely to succumb to immobilization than to capture by industry. He concludes that when regulatory activism does take place, it is less the result of the professional commitment of the staff and more a response to political pressure from outside.
