  • Explaining the Prevalence of State Constitutional Conventions in the
           Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For much of U.S. history, constitutional conventions were called regularly to frame, revise, and amend state constitutions. From the 1770s through the 1970s, the 50 states held nearly 250 constitutional conventions, many of which brought about important changes in governance. These conventions were responsible for expanding and occasionally contracting voting rights as well as recognizing and adjusting other rights. Conventions also reshaped governing institutions, expanded opportunities for direct popular participation in lawmaking, constrained governing authority in notable ways, and authorized and enacted various public policies.1After many years when conventions were called regularly, recent decades have seen ...

  • Defining Rockefeller Republicanism: Promise and Peril at the Edge of the
           Liberal Consensus, 1958–1975

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nelson Rockefeller entered electoral politics in 1958, hoping that the governorship of New York would provide him the platform he needed to reshape the national Republican Party in his image. He assumed office in 1959, believing that he could convince New York Republicans to embrace an active government that provided a social safety net and addressed racial inequality while promoting economic growth. Even as Rockefeller became a fixture in New York politics, he spent an increasing amount of time defending and justifying Rockefeller Republicanism rather than moving it to the mainstream of his party. Rockefeller Republicanism was always on the defense in New York; as time passed, however, that defensiveness and ... Read More

  • An Industry Worth Protecting' The Manufacturers Aircraft
           Association’s Struggle against the British Surplus, 1919–1922

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On April 27, 2017, the Boeing Company—the largest U.S. producer of civil aircraft and a vital defense contractor—requested government action against a proposed sale of seventy-five CS100 aircraft from Canadian firm Bombardier to U.S. carrier Delta. Boeing’s portrayal of the deal as unfair and predatory fell upon sympathetic ears within the new Trump administration, which would, within a year, point to national security concerns to justify increased tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. A subsequent antidumping investigation prompted a December Commerce Department ruling that accused Bombardier of planning to import aircraft into the US “at 79.82 percent less than fair value,” charged Canada with “providing unfair ...

  • Evolution and Electoral Implications of Congressional Gun Control Issue
           Framing: “From Crime Control to Mass Shootings”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On April 17, 2013, president Barack Obama called it a “shameful day for Washington”1 after the Senate, debating gun control in response to the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, failed to pass any new gun control legislation. In the years since Sandy Hook resurrected a politically dormant gun control debate, its focus has revolved around mass shooting events—Sandy Hook, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Parkland coming to dominate and shape the political and policy discourse involving gun control. But despite growing public support and the Democratic Party’s renewed commitment to the issue, Congress has failed to pass any new federal gun control legislation since Sandy Hook. Yet before the mass shooting ... Read More

      Abstract: The original published version of the contributor list for vol. 34, no. 2 of the Journal of Policy History contained two errors.1 Daniel Moak was described as an assistant professor of African American Studies; the correct title for this author is assistant professor of Government. Additionally, the listings for both Daniel Moak and Sarah Cate omitted the affiliation of both authors with the Debs-Jones-Douglass Institute. The corrected biographies for both authors appear below:SARAH CATE is an assistant professor of Political Science at Seattle University and a member of the Debs-Jones-Douglass Institute. Her research focuses on the juvenile justice system, politics of prison reform, and American political ... Read More

  • From Labor Rights to the Right to Work: Constituting and Resisting Social
           Citizenship, 1932–1953

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Many New Dealers viewed the protections for collective bargaining enacted by the National Labor Relations Act [NLRA] as an important contribution to what President Franklin Roosevelt described as “common justice” when he signed it into law in July 1935. In 1941 he proclaimed four freedoms as the essential foundation for a “good society,” insisting on the equal importance of freedom “from want,” freedom “from fear,” free speech, and religious freedom. Roosevelt’s 1944 State of the Union address advocated a “Second Bill of Rights” affirming the right to health care, education, employment, housing, and economic security so that every American enjoyed the civil liberties promised in the Declaration of Independence and ...
