American Nationalism and U.S. Foreign Policy from September 11 to the Iraq War
PAUL T. McCARTNEY examines how the Bush administration drew upon nationalist imagery first to interpret the terrorists attacks of 11 September 2001 and then to frame the war against Iraq. He demonstrates how President Bush drew on both enduring elements of American identity and security concerns following September 11 to provide normative justification for the Iraq invasion. He concludes that the exceptionalist dimension of American nationalism that underpins the Bush doctrine is outdated and dangerous to current foreign policy interests.

pp. 399-423

Managed Participation in China
YONGSHUN CAI examines how citizen resistance is possible and how it is managed in China. He concludes that while the Chinese political system is flexible and provides space for citizen resistance, such resistance is confined within the boundary established by the state.

Databases, Felons, and Voting: Bias and Partisanship of the Florida Felons List in the 2000 Elections
GUY STUART analyzes the use of the felons' exclusion list in the 2000 presidential elections in Florida. He finds that the state produced a list that contained racially biased errors, and that county supervisors across the state did not use the list uniformly. Instead, party politics intervened: any partisan advantage Republicans gained from the use of the list was offset by Democratic supervisors' refusal to use a flawed list.

pp. 453-475

The Global Governance of the Internet: Bringing the State Back In
Daniel W. Drezner assesses the current state of global Internet governance. He challenges the common assumption that the Internet leads to a decline in state autonomy relative to other global actors. Drezner argues that the great powers remain the primary actors shaping the governance structure and regulatory standards of the Internet.

pp. 477-498

Electoral Reform and Partisan Jugglery
Peter H. Argersinger examines the ways in which many of the controversial features of the presidential election of 2000 had precedents in the late nineteenth century. Focusing on Michigan's law for the district election of presidential electors, he shows the persistent partisanship that controls electoral rules and still prevents serious electoral reform.
