Texas A&M University Press to Extend 30% Conference Discount in Light of APSA Meeting Cancellation

About this time today, Texas A&M University Press would have been showcasing its best political science titles at a  special discount for APSA meeting attendees. Instead, Hurricane Isaac rages in Louisiana, on the anniversary of deadly Hurricane Katrina, no less.

Tuesday evening the American Political Science Association council made the decision to cancel this year’s APSA annual meeting in New Orleans.

Our Press would love to be in New Orleans exhibiting books, but we support APSA's decision to cancel.
Since we won't be there to show off this great collection in our booth, we've decided to extend our 30% conference discount through the month of September online. Access the order form for books we would have exhibited there, as well.
You can also search by series listings: Presidential Rhetoric and Political Communication, Landmark Speeches, and Library of Presidential Rhetoric.
Please use code 3BAPSA upon checkout on the Web site. Or call 800-826-8911 to order using the code.

Analysis of Presidential Term Limits Receives APSA Nod

While you are reviewing the list, be sure to also check out Presidential Term Limits in American History: Power, Principles, and Politics, by Michael J. Korzi. The author was slated to accept the prestigious Richard E. Neustadt Award at the APSA conference.

In Presidential Term Limits in American History, Korzi recounts the history of the two-term tradition, as well as the “perfect storm” that enabled Roosevelt to break with that tradition. Korzi’s analysis of Roosevelt’s pursuit of a fourth term offers a strong challege to biographers who have generally whitewashed this aspect of his presidency and decision making. His extended consideration of the selfom-studied 22nd Amendment and its passage reveals vindictive and political motivations and a sincere distrust of executive power that dates back to colonial America.
