|Politics, Congress, Elections, and Voter Turn Out|
Don Beachler studies Congress, public policy, the politics of Social Security and Medicare reform, elections, voter turnout, reapportionment and gerrymandering, and how issues of race, genocide and the Holocaust play out in politics.
Beachler has published numerous papers and articles on Congress, elections and voter turnout as well as two books in the “Winning the White House” series on presidential elections. Forthcoming in the fall of 2011 will be his book “The Genocide Debate: Politicians, Academics, and Victims,” which examines how different episodes of mass killing--in Rwanda, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Nazi Germany and the Ottoman Empire--have been politicized.
