The Parties Respond: Changes in American Parties and Campaigns

The Parties Respond: Changes in American Parties and Campaigns (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This classic text examines the issues surrounding party politics in the United States. The fourth edition considers the demise of the Reform Party in 2000 and discusses campaign finance reform.. As a survey of the most current and significant issues affecting party politics in the United States, The Parties Respond has become a standard for reference and college course use. L. Sandy Maisel draws together leading scholars as well as party activists for fifteen original essays. The topics addressed include party organization, the changing relationship between parties and voters, the campaign and election process, and parties in government. The fourth edition offers a modest shortening of the work by eliminating two chapters, adding a new chapter on the demise of the Reform Party in 2000, and a new chapter on campaign finance (and lack of reform).
