Notes from the Editors

Extract

The next issue, that of November 2012, will be the last for the “UCLA” team—which now includes Harvard, Ohio State, and Stanford—as (now former) co-editors of APSR. The new University of North Texas (UNT) editors are already receiving all papers submitted after June 30, 2012 (at the rate of almost twenty per week, John Ishiyama tells us) while we are handling the “conditional accepts” and “revise and resubmits” that were in the pipeline and have invited referees for the submissions that arrived through June 30. So far, all seems to be running smoothly at both ends, for which we express our gratitude to Aries (which runs Editorial Manager), to the North Texas editorial team, and especially to the professionals who make the whole enterprise run—Joseph Riser, who has served as a superb senior editor at UCLA—and his successor at UNT, Meagan Williams.

2 None of this is new, at least to those of us who grew up on farms and inherited Populist rhetoric. Cf. William Jennings Bryan (1896), “Tear down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.”

3 Walsh, we should probably emphasize, conducted her research well before the recent controversies over public-sector unions in Wisconsin. It may however shed light on those controversies, and on the ensuing electoral struggles.

5 As the German Basic Law puts it succinctly, “Bundesrecht bricht Landesrecht.”

6 Indeed, the lower court in such cases may craft a disposition of the case that fits the higher court's ideology, but a rule that diverges from it (relatedly, recall Marbury v. Madison). If the higher court reviews such a case, it will usually be to affirm the result but state a different rule.
