The Responsible Electorate: Rationality in Presidential Voting, 1936-1960

Publisher: Cambridge, MA: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1966..

DJ has tiny chips at corners & spine ends; in Brodart archival cover. Key was working on this book at the time of his death in 1963. According to the foreword, "Key's method is to classify voters in presidential elections as standpatters (those who vote for the candidate of the same party in successive elections), switchers, and new voters, and to determine whether there are significant correlations between the presidential choice of these three types of voters and their opinions of the issues, events, and candidates of the campaigns.. Key concludes that they move from party to party in a manner that is broadly consistent with their policy preferences, and that switchers are far more numerous than is commonly supposed."

Lebedoff, David  
Ward Number Six

Publisher: New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1972..
First Edition. 21 X 14 cm. Near Fine/Near Fine. Red cloth, foil titles on spine, grey endpapers, ix, 179 pp. Slight rubbing to tail of spine & bottom corners. Price-clipped DJ has a crease to rear flap; in Brodart archival cover. Lebedoff knows how to tell a story, and puts that talent to use in his personal account of the 1968 contest between supporters of the Administration (later just Hubert Humphrey) and supporters of Eugene McCarthy for the Democratic nomination. He starts with the student takeover of the Sixth Ward club in Minneapolis, and follows the process up through the precinct caucuses and ward, county, and state conventions, with his view of the national convention as an observer serving as a sort of coda.

Is Democracy Fair? The Mathematics of Voting and Apportionment
Publisher: Emeryville, CA.
New Key Curriculum Press Later Printing Paperback For grades 6-12. This book was born because two mathematics teachers who worked together also took quilting classes together and began to see the quilt possibilities in many of the mathematical concepts in texts and journals.

The activities in this book help student improve their visualization skills, as well as their skills in analysis, informal deduction, and formal deduction - levels one -four of the van Hiele model of the five levels of learning geometry. This book should be especially helpful to those students who have trouble with formal geometry but are otherwise capable students because its activities take these students through the first three levels of learning successfully so that they are able to also be successful in the fourth level.

The book is divided into three sections, each featuring quilts with similar designs: Golden Ratio Quilts, Spiral Quilts, Right Triangle Quilts, and the Tiling Quilts. After students are introduced to the theme, they encounter a series of activities that guide them through the mathematical concepts related to that particular kind of quilt design. Each section includes research activities, technology activities for graphing calculators and computers, and Internet activities. In conclusion students recreate the quilt pattern with an emphasis on the art of the design. Students can actually learn how to sew the quilt if they are interested in doing it. 168 pages. More than 50 blackline activity masters included. Punched to fit standard three-hole notebook. ; Textbook; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 155 pages; Black Line Activity Masters, punched to fit standard three-hole notebook.
