  Ballroom: Internationl vs American style
American Rhythm, on the other hand, seems to still be moving in a direction closer to its International counterpart.
American style features open work, under-arm turns, open extended lines, etc., while International style requires a close proximity of the partners at all times, and hence can use the concept of a "common center" which allows for a three- dimensional body action in unison that does not quite work for American style.
American Style also includes the Samba, although it's been noted many many times that the Samba is probably the dance with the least amount of differences between AS and IS. In fact, it's been observed that the dance is EXACTLY the same in both styles.

 The Generational Rhythm of American Politics
In American history, the pattern of challenges and responses has taken two generalized forms, one in the colonial period when each colony had its own internal politics essentially independent of its sisters, and the other science independence when a common national constitution created a common national politics.
Students of American electoral behavior have clearly shown that there is a tendency for one of the major parties to command the allegiance of a majority of the national electorate for a relatively long period of time.
To suggest that a generational rhythm is clearly apparent in American politics is not to suggest that events move in any lock-step, that the rhythm of every generation is exactly the same as that of every other, or that there are no exceptions to the "normal" rules.
