Right to Vote by Alexander Keyssar

Book Description

Originally published in 2000, The Right to Vote was widely hailed as a magisterial account of the evolution of suffrage from the American Revolution to the end of the twentieth century. In this revised and updated edition, Keyssar carries the story forward, from the disputed presidential contest of 2000 through the 2008 campaign and the election of Barack Obama. The Right to Vote is a sweeping reinterpretation of American political history as well as a meditation on the meaning of democracy in contemporary American life.

Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College? by Alexander Keyssar Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College?, Hardback (October 2016)

Every four years Americans find themselves asking why they choose their presidents through the Electoral College, which narrows election campaigns to swing states and can permit the loser of the popular vote to become president. Alexander Keyssar explores efforts to abolish or reform the Electoral College, and why those efforts have failed.

Way of the Ship by Alexander Keyssar Way of the Ship, Hardback (December 2007)

The history of shipping in America, as traditionally recounted, is based primarily on the fortunes of the American merchant marine. This book offers a global perspective and considers oceanic shipping and domestic shipping along America's coasts and inland waterways, with explanations of the forces that influenced the way of the ship.
