Abstract: For decades, the Democrats have been viewed as the party of the poor with the
Republicans representing the rich. In recent years, however, a reverse pattern has
been seen, with Democrats showing strength in the richer “blue” states in the Northeast
and West, and Republicans dominating in the “red” states in the middle of the
country. Through multilevel analysis of individual-level survey data and county- and
state-level demographic and electoral data, we reconcile these patterns. We find that
there has indeed been a trend toward richer areas supporting the Democrats—but
within states and counties, and overall, the Democrats retain the support of the poorer
voters. This pattern has confused many political commentators into falsely believing
that Republicans represent poorer voters than Democrats.

2. New, Michael. "In state declines vs out of state increases: An analysis of how state level anti-abortion legislation influences the incidence of abortion in neighboring states." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361681_index.html>

Abstract: Many academic and policy studies provide evidence that state level restrictions on abortion, including public funding restrictions, parental involvement laws, and informed consent laws, reduce the number of abortions that take place within the boundaries of a given state. However, it is possible that women are circumventing these laws by seeking abortions in states where the laws are less restrictive. In this study, I will make use of a comprehensive time series cross sectional dataset of state abortion rates. This will allow me to analyze the extent to which these in-state abortion declines are offset by abortion increases in neighboring states.

"Against the State, With the State, Within the State: The Risks of Being an NGO in a Context of Health Reform in Santiago and Montevideo" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Marriott Hotel, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 12, 2005 Online <PDF>. 2019-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p22815_index.html>

Abstract: The paper examines the changing role of health NGOs and their relation with the governmental structures in a context of health reforms in the Southern Cone countries of Chile and Uruguay. Transformations in the role of civil society are seen as the result of major global forces of decentralization, state reform, economic liberalization and re-democratization in the region. In this context the paper analyzes the mixed impacts that administrative and political decentralization have for the enhancement of opportunities of NGOs. Drawing upon the evidence collected in two summer fieldwork trips, the paper examines the advantages and disadvantages of NGOs in the provision of health care, bringing to the fore the commonalities and differences observed across countries. Finally, the paper acknowledges the advantages of different NGO approaches to the State, identifying some possible risks associated with them for the future of policy formulation.

"From Pancasila State to a Secular-Santri State: Speculating How an Accommodationist State Format Could Emerge in Post-Suharto Indonesia" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Le Centre Sheraton Hotel, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Mar 17, 2004 <Not Available>. 2019-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p74520_index.html>

Abstract: This article propounds that in the near future, an accommodationist, Middle Way state structure will evolve in Indonesia that will neither be totally Islamic nor totally secular. A secular-santri state representing a form of dynamic co-existence between the idea of an Islamic state where political Islam is dominant and the secularist pancasila state of the Suharto years may become the most plausible outcome where Islam in Indonesia strives to find its equilibrium in an environment characterized by diversity and pluralism. In such a context, scope will exist for minority groups to progress however Indonesian Islam's moderate santri adherents will define the ideological content of the state. Since independence, two social forces have struggled to define Islam's place in Indonesia. One, representing a puritanical Islamic pole that insists on the application of syariah law, and another, whose adherents include both devout santri and nominal Muslim abangan elements representing the traditional-nationalist pole preferring a secular state. The challenge for the Indonesian state is how to manage the balance between both forces. Elaborated in this paper is the issue of enhanced solidarity among Indonesian Muslims since September 11 and how this is changing the contours of nationalism; the lack of credibility of the Indonesian state since the 1997 economic crises and how this perception impacts Muslim perceptions relating to the ideological basis of the post-independence state; and the increasing Islamization of Indonesian society.
