Florida 2000: A Sourcebook on the Contested Presidential Election

Overview

Whitman (history, Towson U.) sets out the legal and constitutional issues raised by the controversial election from 8 November to 12 December 2000, and to some degree afterward.

He appends a chronology of the dispute, electoral and popular vote totals by state, a map of the disputed state and counties, and the official results in Florida by county. Annotation ©2003 ...
