Abstract: Recent work by Djupe (2000) warns proponents of a society with vibrant, competing political parties that declining linkages to traditional religious organizations might loosen citizen linkages to these same parties. He premises this on the assumption that the loyalties citizens have to their church are also linked to their political loyalties and he draws on cross-sectional data from the early 1990s for empirical support. However, data from the recent 2000-2002-2004 American National Election Study (ANES) panel suggests that the demise of religious commitment or partisan identification is hardly imminent. What remains unexplored is to what extent the short-term changes in partisan identification can be explained by the changes in religious behavior, and vice versa. In this paper, we utilize latent curve modeling (LCM) to explore the structural relationships and covariance structure of partisanship and religiosity, controlling for religious denomination and other relevant predictors. We discuss our findings of a positive correlation between the initial intensity of these two trends and a significant, positive effect of partisanship on the change in religiosity over time. Both our significant and null findings shed light on the deep political divides that many now suggest exist in the contemporary United States (c.f. White 2002; Caeser and Busch 2005; Pomper 2005; Hunter 1991, 1994; Abramowitz and Saunders 2005; but see Fiorina 2005) .

Abstract: Research on the cycle of addiction has shown that addict lifestyles are incredibly hard to break away from. More recent advances have investigated whether observed changes in behavior are the result of differing propensities to engage in behavior or whether the intervention of social factors external to the individual are associated with change, net of underlying propensities. This paper examines the long term effects (42 months follow up) of two Therapeutic Community (TC) drug treatment programs (KEY and CREST) on the relapse to drug use for drug-involved offenders while controlling for demographic characteristics and underlying propensities to use drugs. The results indicate that present drug use for the participants in the TC programs is significantly lower compared to those not involved in the programs. Theoretical considerations and policy implications are addressed.

3. Iskandar, Adel. "Is Al Jazeera Alternative? On Alterity, Mainstreaming and the Radical Media" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p93112_index.html>

Abstract: In its nine-year history, the Arab satellite news network Al Jazeera has been the subject of much debate. From glorification to vilification, the station has been described as “radical” by its detractors and as an “alternative” medium by its admirers. Since the launch of the war in Afghanistan in October 2001, Al Jazeera, already of immense popularity in the Arab world, solidified its reputation as the go-to source for “alternative” news for much of the Western hemisphere. Currently, the station is in an ambivalent position vis-à-vis its regional and global audiences -- in some instances serving as the sole voice of discursive dissent and in others acting as the major mainstream broadcaster in the Arab world. This paper assesses the narratives of “nativity” and “alterity” as they pertain to Al Jazeera, thereby comparing its corporate institutional “wholesaler” properties to the station’s seemingly contradictory role as an alternative news provider. Does Al Jazeera fall into the category of “alternative media?” In its current structure, how do characterizations of the station as “counter-hegemonic” fare?

Abstract: It has been argued that the hegemony of sovereignty is constructed by a binary opposition between inside and outside. The paper reconsiders how hegemony of sovereignty is constructed in process of state-building. Sovereignty is totally a discursive practice: national identity inside relies on the foreign threats outside. The methodology of inside/outside may play the convincing role in analysing the sovereign-building of early-modern (Meiji) Japan. The Japanese national identity inside is constructed by confronting the Western imperial powers as the outside threats. This paper deals with how hegemony of the sovereignty is discursively constructed by the inside/outside dichotomy in the process of the Japanese state-building in early-modern period. Two mechanisms play the significant roles in hegemonising the Meiji sovereignty: Exclusion and Supplement. National consciousness of the Meiji Japan, on the one hand, strongly relied on the Western threats, since there has been no nationalism and national identity until the Western powers confront Japan in mid-nineteen century. In this sense, the Japanese national identity inside is constructed by excluding the West. On the other hand, it does not mean the Meiji Japan totally challenged the modern international system: Japan induced a number of Western methods and technology in the process of modernisation. That is, Japanese modernization inside are also supplemented by the Western methods. This is because, the Meiji restoration is neither complete Westernisation (Kaikoku: open country) nor endorsement of ultra-nationalism (Sakoku: close country), but combination of both. Thus, an overall aim of the paper is to uncover discursive practices of the Meiji Japan that excludes and be supplemented by the West.

Abstract: I analyze the conditions under which Justices' policy preferences have a greater or lesser impact on their choices. I use hierarchical modeling to test whether certain case-level factors explain variation in the impact of preferences across cases.
