In 1890, the Superintendent of the Census described the western part of the country as having so many pockets of settled area that a frontier line could no longer be said to exist. The advance of the frontier line that characterized shifts in population distribution for the previous 100 years was complete. This series of maps highlights population expansion into new territory, subsequent gains in population density, and increasing urbanization.

Voting Behavior: The 2008 Election is a new SETUPS (Supplementary Empirical Teaching Units in Political Science) that offers students the ability to analyze an accessible dataset drawn from the 2008 American National Election Study (ANES) survey of the American electorate. Charles Prysby and Carmine Scavo, who have coauthored the voting behavior SETUPS modules since 1984, developed this new SETUPS module to provide students with the opportunity to analyze data from the most recent presidential election. This instructional module is part of a long line of voting behavior SETUPS, which began with the 1972 election. For over 30 years, the American Political Science Association (APSA) and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) have collaborated to develop and distribute the SETUPS instructional modules. The 2008 SETUPS module continues the model begun in 2004 of being completely online, including the data analysis components. We hope that users find this approach desirable, and we welcome feedback from users.

Running from Florida to Maine, I-95 passes through 15 states and several major cities. I-95 serves the most densely populated region of the U.S., the Boston-to-Washington corridor. Peaks and valleys in population density within 5 miles of the interstate show several stretches of continuously built-up area, especially evident from Petersburg, VA to Lewiston, ME. Selected cities along the route are labeled, for reference.

Of the major interstates in the country, I-5 passes through the second-largest population (behind only I-95 on the nation's east coast). In its path from southern California to Washington State, I-5 traverses densely populated areas of Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle but, in contrast to the I-95 transportation corridor, there are long stretches of I-5 that pass through areas with very low population density such as California's Central Valley. Selected cities along the route are labeled, for reference.

The WPSA Annual Meeting will be hed on March 28 - 30, 2013, at the Loew's Hotel, Hollywood, CA. The theme for the event is: "The Empire Strkes Back!." Democratic governance, and its triumph over fascism and state-socialism, have long been facilitated by the ability of capitalism to “reform itself” or, more precisely, to reconcile itself to the modest regulation imposed by popular rule. Regulations and reforms established more than a century ago in the Teddy Roosevelt administration, and expanded from time to time in the 40 years that followed, constrained the exploitation of workers, prevented banks from gambling with the economic system, broke up monopolies, restricted unfair labor practices, and established a social safety net, and in so doing provided fertile ground for an unprecedented rate of economic growth, improvement in human conditions, and the establishment of a large and productive middle class. The stability that followed—and the spread or co-occurrence of this approach (with variation and modifications) in the other industrialized democracies of the world—forestalled the emergence of fascism in the U.S. and simultaneously pushed back against the spread of state-socialism in Europe and beyond.Since the passage of the Taft Hartley Act in 1947, the US has seen steady erosion in those protections. Workers in the US and Europe bear a greater and greater burden for the social goods provided by their society and receive fewer and fewer benefits while those who have benefitted most from the triumph of capitalism have begun to knock down the reforms achieved in the 20th Century. Hopes of spreading the improved human condition to the global south have foundered on a reconstructed mercantilist and neo-colonial international trade regime that has resulted in exploitation of workers in lesser-developed nations and vast environmental degradation.Is democracy up to this challenge? Can the free-market global economy again be brought into line with the goals of improving the conditions of humanity? Are our institutions, nation-states, international compacts, and ways of thinking up to this challenge, or will the latter part of the 21st Century more closely resemble the late 19th than the late 20th? While the WPSA welcomes proposals on all political and governmental questions of interest to the discipline, in 2013, we would like to pay particular attention to domestic and international inequality, its causes and its consequences, and whether democratic institutions are up to the task of addressing either.

This site from National Geographic examines a study from UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) suggesting that less than 10 percent of the remaining habitat of the great apes of Africa will be left relatively undisturbed by 2030 if road building, mining camps, and other infrastructure developments continue at current levels. The findings are based on a new method of evaluating the wider impacts of infrastructure development on key species.
