George W. Bush, the Surge, and Presidential Leadership
Stephen Benedict Dyson discusses the impact of George W. Bush's personality and belief system on the decision to surge troops in Iraq. He argues that absent Bush's distinctive approach to leadership, the surge decision would not have been made.

pp. 557-585

The Origins of the Two Lefts in Latin America
RAÚL L. MADRID argues that liberal left parties in Latin America arose prior to the debt crisis of the 1980s and were profoundly shaped by the failure of state interventionist policies and the initial success of market-oriented reforms. The interventionist left parties, by contrast, typically emerged in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the economies of the region had encountered problems and the support for market-oriented policies had diminished.

pp. 587-609
 

Conservatives and American Political Development
Brian J. Glenn explores how conservatism has impacted the growth of the American state since the New Deal and also how the growth of the American state has influenced conservatism. He finds that in many instances, conservatives have moved beyond mere obstructionism and that a new form of modern conservatism has conceded the goals of liberalism.

pp. 611-638
 

Consumer Protection Policy Issues on the Congressional Agenda
Loree Bykerk and Ardith Maney look at how consumer protection policy fared under the conservative congresses of recent decades. They argue that although the congressional forum open to consumer protection issues remained stable, consumer advocates and their allies were significantly more outnumbered by producer interests than they were before the Republican takeover of the House in 1995.

pp. 639-655
 

Turkey and Europeanization of Foreign Policy?
TARIK OGUZLU argues that even though Turkish foreign policy has in recent years become Europeanized, the driving force of this Europeanization has not been Turkey's accession process with the European Union or its desire to prove its European identity.
