Dr. Bullock Discusses New Book at the Georgia State Capitol

School of Public and International Affairs

Department of Political Science

Feb 2016

On January 27, Dr. Bullock spent the morning at the Capitol hosting a discussion and book signing of his new book, The Three Governor’s Controversy: Skullduggery, Machinations, and the Decline of Georgia's Progressive Politics. Governor Deal, President Morehead, Attorney General Olens, and numerous legislators, alumni, and friends were in attendance. "It was great to have Dr. Bullock come to the capitol to speak about his new book. It speaks volumes about Dr. Bullock as well as SPIA and its faculty that legislators and the Governor made the time to see him,” said Caulder Harvill-Childs, SPIA graduate. “As always, it was great to reconnect with my favorite professor and my fellow SPIA alums. I wouldn’t be where I am today without SPIA, and I’m excited about future opportunities for alumni!” The discussion detailed how the death of Georgia governor-elect Eugene Talmadge in late 1946 launched a constitutional crisis that ranks as one of the most unusual political events in U.S. history: the state had three active governors at once, each claiming that he was the true elected official.

Professor Dougherty Becomes Associate Editor of Public Choice

School of Public and International Affairs

Department of Political Science

Feb 2016

Professor Keith Dougherty has been named the Associate Editor for the journal Public Choice. Public Choice studies the intersection between economics and political science. The journal plays a central role in fostering exchange between economists and political scientists, enabling both communities to explain and learn from each other’s perspectives.

“It was a bit of a surprise and an honor to be asked to join the editorial team. I guess it indicates that the journal values my judgment on manuscripts and trusts I will make good decisions,” said Dougherty. “I will join the editorial board as one of three associate editors on June 1. My emphasis will be primarily handling manuscripts in formal theory and/or political science. I hope to continue my active research agenda, to teach well in the classroom, and to raise two great kids at the same time.”

Dr. Dougherty is one of seven SPIA professors with editorships. The other journals include:

Public Administration Review (Deborah Carroll, associate editor)
The Journal of Intelligence and National Security (Loch Johnson, editor)
1540 Compass (Igor Khripunov, editor)
The European Journal of Political Research (Cas Mudde, editor)
The Journal of Public Policy (Andrew Whitford, editor)
The Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory (Bradley E. Wright, editor)

CITS Director presents at JumpStart 2016

Center for International Trade and Security

Jan 2016

CITS Director Dr. Scott Jones is giving a talk on "Off-shoring: U.S. – Asia Trade" at the 2016 Jump Start Logistics Technology Summit in Atlanta. The talk will cover how the flow of low-end manufacturing away from China is reshaping trade routes throughout Asia, a change partly driven by Chinese wage growth. Even though China continues to invest in its high-tech manufacturing base, a sign of a mature exporting power, their economic growth is still slower today in comparison to other countries in Southeast Asia. What does this mean for domestic importing and what does the US – Asia relationship look like in the future? Our thought leader will break down the evolving face of U.S. – Asia trade
