Patterns of Ethnic Succession: Blacks and Hispanics in New York City
Daniel Patrick Moynihan reviews the gains achieved by blacks and Hispanics in New York City over the past decade and relates those gains to general patterns of ethnic succession.

pp. 1-14

Franklin D. Roosevelt and His Foreign Policy Critics
Richard W. Steele reexamines the actions and attitudes of President Franklin D. Roosevelt toward critics of his foreign policy just before and in the early years of American entry in World War II. According to Steele, Roosevelt viewed what was mere dissent as evidence of subversion and disloyalty.

pp. 15-32

A Comment on "Roosevelt and His Foreign Policy Critics"
Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. takes issue with Steele's analysis, contending that presidential critics fared much better under the Roosevelt administration than under earlier wartime administrations such as Lincoln's and Woodrow Wilson's.

pp. 33-35

The White House and the News Media: The Phases of Their Relationship
Michael Baruch Grossman and Martha Joynt Kumar explore what they define as phases that have occurred in the relationship between the president and the news media in all administrations since 1960. They suggest that there are three such phases -- alliance, competition, and detachment -- that have recurred in spite of the major differences in policies and personalities of the incumbents.

pp. 37-53

The Bureaucratic Politics Paradigm and the Soviet Invasion of Czechoslovakia
Jiri Valenta applies the bureaucratic politics paradigm to Soviet management of the Czechoslovak crisis of 1968. His study shows that the paradigm substantially illuminates many aspects of decision making that have not previously received sufficient attention and suggests that focusing on the dynamics of the role played by the bureaucracies can be useful in the analysis of Soviet national security and foreign policy behavior.

pp. 55-76

A Statist Interpretation of American Oil Policy toward the Middle East
Stephen D. Krasner reviews American oil policy toward the Middle East from World War II to the oil crisis. He argues that that policy can only be understood if a theoretical perspective is used that conceives the state as an autonomous actor rather than as a reflector of underlying economic forces or interest group pressures.

pp. 77-96

Realignment of the Jewish Vote?
ALAN FISHER tests some recent perceptions of party realignment among American Jews by examining different data sources for party affiliation and voting in national and local elections. He finds continued support among Jews for Democrats and a relatively constant difference with the non-Jewish vote for the last thirty years.

pp. 97-116

Interest Groups in the Postpartisan Era: The Political Machine of the AFL-CIO
Harry Holloway argues that the weakening of political parties has been accompanied by the rise of interest group political activity and that the political machine created by the AFL-CIO federation embodies such activity on an unusual scale.

pp. 117-133

Incentives and Voter Participation: A Research Note
RONALD J. TERCHEK analyzes levels of black voting in Cleveland during the 1960s. He finds that turnouts varied with the saliency of issues, the symbolic importance of ethnicity, and the expected competitiveness in a particular election.
