Russian Foreign Policy and the West
Paul Kubicek analyzes crucial cases of Russian-Western interaction after the Cold War to determine whether foreign policy interests or domestic politics better explain Russian foreign policy. He argues that domestic politics has affected rhetoric much more than policy, and that Russian policy responds predictably to constraints and opportunities in the international environment.

The Paradox of Clinton Winning and the Presidency Losing
Richard M. Pious describes a paradoxical outcome of the Clinton impeachment: the president staved off personal catastrophe and inflicted political damage on his opponents, but did so at the expense of the institutional protections of testimonial privilege, a result that will be damaging to the presidential office in the future.

Getting into the Black: Race, Wealth, and Public Policy
Dalton Conley examines the causes and consequences of the black-white asset gap in the United States.

Conley discusses policy implications that may be used to address such "equity inequity."

A Constitutional Pied Piper: The Norther Irish Good Friday Agreement
Andrew Reynolds finds parallels between the crafting of the Northern Irish God Friday agreement and the experiences of South Africa and Zimbabwe which made the journey from unstable mi nority rule to majority re-incorporation.

Political Parties and Candidate Selection in Venezuela and Colombia
John D. Martz focuses on presidential candidate selection in Venezuela and Colombia to explore the hypothesis that prevailing political party elites seek to preserve their organizational domination even while voicing rhetorical commitment to grass roots participation. He concludes that both informal and institutional mechanisms mirror the continuing determination of party elites to finesse popular demands for internal party democratization.

pp. 639-659

The Mexican-American Diaspora's Impact on Mexico
Yossi Shain discusses the changing relations between home countries and their diasporic kin with particular emphasis on the role of diasporas in the construction and reconstruction of national identity in their homeland. He explores how the rapprochement between Mexico and its U.S.-based diaspora after years of estrangement has led to homeland's changing perception of itself.
