Rachel M. McCleary, PhD'86, Dictating Democracy: Guatemala and the End of Violent Revolution (University Press of Florida). McCleary analyzes relations between the Guatemalan military and private sectors from 1982 to 1994, arguing that the country was returned to democratic rule in the mid-1990s because of an elite agreement following the coup against President Jorge Serrano Elias.

David Menefee-Libey, AM'82, PhD'89, The Triumph of Campaign-Centered Politics (Seven Bridges Press). Drawing on interviews and archival research, Menefee-Libey contends that campaign-centered politics is now the dominant force in American elections, with serious implications for representative democracy. He includes 1998 election data on campaign finance and other activities.

David R. Segal, AM'63, PhD'67;Charles C. Moskos; and John Allen Williams, editors, The Postmodern Military: Armed Forces after the Cold War (Oxford University Press).
