Reinventing Collective Security after the Cold War and Gulf Conflict
Andrew Bennett and Joseph Lepgold examine the prospects for collective security in the post-Cold War international system. While some impediments remain, they argue that the international and domestic prospects for a new concert of great powers are favorable.

pp. 213-237

Arms Control, Stability, and Causes of War
Robert Jervis argues that arms control in the post-Cold War era must be pursued as an adjunct to, not a substitute for, ways of dealing with sources of conflict and methods of managing disputes. He shows that while some of the potential causes of war are likely to lie within the military arena, there is little reason to believe they will be the most potent ones.

pp. 239-253

The 1992 Republican "Tent": No Blacks Walked In
Louis Bolce, Gerald De Maio, and Douglas Muzzio analyze the 1992 elections, reexamining the proposition advanced by some Republican strategists and political commentators that the GOP could attain majority party status by attracting 20 percent of the African American vote. Presidential and congressional exit poll data show no politically relevant black subgroup supported George Bush. His defeat resulted from the defection of key white demographic, socioeconomic and ideological Republican support groups --mainly to independent presidential candidate Ross Perot.

pp. 255-270

Leaders, Violence, and the Absence of Change in Africa
Henry Bienen examines violence and leadership in Africa. He argues that violence has been used to maintain the power of elites, not to change social systems. In his view, to explain violence we must look to patterns of governance, not to individual pathologies.

pp. 271-282

Limiting Liberalism: The Southern Veto in Congress, 1933-1950
Ira Katznelson, Kim Geiger, and Daniel Kryder explore the policy implications of the role played by southern Democrats in Congress during the 1930s and 1940s. They show on what issues southern Democrats deviated from the positions of their southern brethren and on what issues they remained loyal.

pp. 283-306

Civil Society and Democratic Transition in East Central Europe
