Two Majorities by Byron E. Shafer

Book Description

Why do voters so often exhibit patterns of policy preference vastly different from what analysts and strategists predict? And why do these same voters consistently cast ballots that ensure the continuation of "divided government?" In The Two Majorities Byron Shafer and William Claggett offer groundbreaking political analysis that resolves many of the seeming contradictions in the contemporary American political scene. Provocatively, the authors argue that each party's best strategy for success is not to try to take popular positions on the whole range of issues, but to focus attention on the party's most successful cluster of issues.

Books By Author Byron E. Shafer

American Political Landscape by Byron E. Shafer American Political Landscape, Hardback (February 2014)

While pundits boil down elections to a choice between Democrat and Republican, this book explains how factors not usually considered hard data, such as attitudes and preferences, interact to produce the final tally of votes. It covers the last quarter-century of US electoral politics.

American Public Mind by Byron E. Shafer American Public Mind, Hardback (April 2010)

The American Public Mind pursues the structure of policy preferences in the general public across the postwar years, along with the impact of this structure on electoral politics.

End of Southern Exceptionalism by Byron E. Shafer End of Southern Exceptionalism, Paperback (March 2009)

The transformation of Southern politics after World War II changed the political life not just of this region, but of the entire nation. The shift in Southern political allegiance from Democratic to Republican has been explained, by scholars and journalists, as a white backlash to the civil rights revolution. This book challenges that idea.

Temples of Ancient Egypt by Byron E. Shafer Temples of Ancient Egypt, Paperback (May 2005)

A comprehensive survey of ancient Egyptian temples and rituals associated with their use. Shafer - a renowned Egyptologist - covers the entire pharaonic era, from the Old Kingdom to the Roman period, and challenges the idea that temples were either 'mortuary' or 'divine', showing instead that their functions were varied.
