Description

Long regarded as the gold standard of parties texts, Party Politics in America has remained a best-seller because of the care and attentiveness with which each edition is written. The fifteenth edition examines the impact of the Tea Party, the battles over the rights of public employees’ unions, the effects of Citizens United and Super PACs on congressional and presidential campaigns, and much more.

Building upon the work of Frank Sorauf and Paul Allen Beck, Marjorie Hershey has maintained the book’s three-pronged coverage of party organization, party in the electorate, and party in government while also introducing contemporary and historical examples to bring to life the fascinating story of how parties have helped to shape our political system.
