Volume 109 - Number 4 - Fall 1994

 

Third Try at World Order? America and Multilateralism after the Cold War
John Gerard Ruggie examines the new world order rhetoric of the United States in the post-cold war world. Not dismissing it as mere rhetoric, he shows that it expresses deep-rooted American ideas about desirable ways of organizing the international system that have played both instrumental and aspirational roles since the United States became a world power.

pp. 553-570
 

The Future of the House Republicans
William F. Connelly, Jr., and JOHN J PITNEY, JR. find that House Republicans are becoming more confrontational though not necessarily more conservative. They argue that the strategic environment of the 1994 midterm election may be moving in the GOP's favor and also speculate that large Republican gains in 1994 would bring them costs as well as benefits.

pp. 571-593
 

Lyndon Johnson's Victory in the 1948 Texas Senate Race: A Reappraisal
Dale Baum and James L. Hailey reevaluate Lyndon Baines Johnson's controversial victory in the 1948 Texas senatorial runoff election. They demonstrate that "second efforts" on LBJ's behalf proved to be of no unusual help to him in the runoff and that the statewide result hinged on the combination of LBJ's success and his opponent's failure to mobilize former supporters for the second round of balloting.

pp. 595-613
 

Representation and Territory: The Israeli Experience
Nancy L. Schwartz examines the debate on electoral reform in Israel. Stressing unique features of Israeli political culture, she argues that dividing Israel into geographic districts for electing representatives will not necessarily increase democracy or political legitimacy.

pp. 615-645
 

Nationalism and Small-State Foreign Policy: The Greek Response to the Macedonian Issue
Nikolaos Zahariadis analyzes the effects of Yugoslav Macedonian nationalism on Greek foreign policy. His findings enhance the theoretical understanding of small-state foreign policy behavior and emphasize the importance of symbols and ideas as sources of interstate disputes.

pp. 647-667
 

Congressional Oversight and the Diversity of Members' Goals
Diana Evans examines congressional oversight of the bureaucracy. She argues that previous approaches to oversight overstate the importance of reelection in Congress members' oversight behavior. She offers an alternative view and demonstrates its usefulness with two case studies.
