Description : Few empirical studies of Arab countries have dealt with political culture and political socialisation or focused on people's beliefs, values, and attitudes towards the government or political leaders, mainly because the regimes have been reluctant to allow opinion to be tested. The significance of this book is that it assesses the influence of state ideology on the new generation of Libyans, and examines their political culture.

Description : Excerpt from Political Affairs of the Country, Vol. 3: A Series of Communications on Various Public Topics to the "Hudson Gazette" And "Daily Register," During the Years 1882-3 The reasons given for the publication Of the second volume of my fugitive communications to the register and gazette still exist in favor of a third volume. There is the further reason for such third volume, that it may have a tendency to guard against that robustuous Demo cracy which has been made instrumental in producing the worst evils under which our country has suffered from the days of Aaron Burr to those of Edwin M. Stan ton, and is now being made use of under the name Of a revenue tariff to crush the commerce of the country, by imposing upon it all the burden and expense that knavish cunning can devise; and is also made use of to perpetuate the memory of the late civil war which must ever be the blackest leaf in the history of our country. Even the radical Charles Sumner considered it as such, for on the 2nd of December, 1872, he introduced a bill in the United States Senate of the 42nd Congress, the object of which as expressed in the preamble was to cover with Oblivion the history of that civil war. It provided that the history of the battles in that war Should not be continued in the army register, or placed on the regimental colors of the United States.
