Cheap Seats: The Democratic Party's Advantage in U. S. House Elections

by James E. Campbell
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Campbell (political science, Louisiana State U.) considers the reasons why the Democrats dominated the House elections for four decades and why they lost control in 1994, examining structural advantages that helped congressional Democrats consistently win most of the very-low- turnout districts, or "cheap seats." He explores theoretical issues of representation that cheap seats raise, and offers proposals to change the system. For general readers as well as scholars. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
