Theater Nuclear Forces: Public Opinion in Western Europe
Bruce Russett and Donald R. Deluca look at European public opinion data on nuclear arms deployment and arms control. They argue that the data refute charges that Europeans are becoming neutralist, pacifist, or anti-American, but confirm that Europeans have serious doubts about the prudence of contemporary American leaders.

pp. 179-196

The NATO Decision on Theater Nuclear Forces
Raymond L. Garthoff reviews the NATO decision of 1979 on deploying new intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe. He finds that among the complex considerations underlying that decision, reassurance of the Western Alliance itself was at least as important as deterrence of the Soviet Union.

pp. 197-214

The Environmental Mandate: Activists and the Electorate
Laura M. Lake analyzes the environmental mandate of the 1970s and argues that the recent stalemate over renewing environmental laws is due to a misperception of the nature of public support. She finds that the environmental mandate is broad and long-lived and that the environmentalist electorate contrasts sharply with the stereotype of the environmental movement.

pp. 215-233

Worker Participation and Worker Discontent in the Soviet Union
Charles E. Ziegler examines the sources of worker dissatisfaction in the USSR and the attempts of the Soviet regime to cope with this discontent through expanded participation. He contends that the regime's strategy has been moderately effective in reducing worker dissatisfaction and that the politicization of Soviet workers has remained inchoate.

pp. 235-253

Eisenhower as Party Leader
Cornelius P. Cotter discusses the party leadership record of a president, Dwight Eisenhower, who was assumed to have eschewed a party role. He finds that Eisenhower had a clear conception of how the party related to his administration and consistently sought to influence the organization, leadership, and staffing of the Republican National Committee and to strengthen the party in the states.

pp. 255-283

The Congressional Veto and Administrative Rulemaking
William West and Joseph Cooper focus on the congressional veto as a means of controlling administrative rulemaking. They contend that criticisms of the veto are based on faulty assumptions concerning the legislative and administrative process and that the veto, if structured properly, can have a salutary effect as an oversight device in many areas of administrative rulemaking.
