Paul E. Peterson shows that, despite increased congressional participation in foreign policy making, constraints imposed by the international system still give presidents the dominant voice.

Development and Democracy: Are They Compatible in China?
Yongnian Zheng analyzes the tensions between economic development and political democracy in China using, for the first time, recently published Chinese public opinion surveys.

Ideological Consensus within Divided Party Government
Paul Frymer examines why the United States has had voters choose to divide party control between the presidency and the Congress.

pp. 287-311

Kenneth A. Rodman examines the influence of multinational business corporations' use of economic sanctions in the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. He argues that in many ways, the behavior of these private corporations was more significant than were the sanctions legislated by Congress.

pp. 313-334

Economic Crisis and the Movement toward Pluralism in Poland and Mexico
Voytek Zubek and Judith Gentleman trace the emergence of liberalization initiatives in Poland and Mexico in the late 1970s and 1980s. They conclude that in both cases, by politically legitimizing private initiative, political elites attempted to stimulate economic growth.
