New York City and Cosmopolitan Liberalism
BERNARD GIFFORD traces the economic decline of New York City vis-a-vis the rest of the nation to the economic and social policies of the New Deal, the quintessential expression of New York's liberal political ideology. He posits that the recent economic difficulties of New York, coupled with increasing attention to computations on revenue flows between New York and Washington, may lead to a "new" New York political ideology.

Woodrow Wilson's Political Personality: A Reappraisal
Edwin A. Weinstein, JAMES W. ANDERSON, and Arthur S. Link review the literature on Woodrow Wilson's personality, concentrating on the book Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House by Alexander and Juliette George.

Origins of the Cold War: Some Clues from Public Opinion
George H. Quester argues that an examination of American and foreign public opinion for the years after 1945 can shed new light on the issue of "who started the cold war?" A crucial finding is that such opinion saw the cold war as emerging only slowly and gradually, rather than erupting directly at the end of World War II.

pp. 647-663

The Effect of Incumbency on Voting in Congressional Elections, 1964-1974
