Life after Reform: When the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act Meets Politicsby Michael J. Malbin
The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (otherwise known as McCain- Feingold) is assessed by political scientists brought together by the Campaign Finance Institute, of which editor Malbin is the executive director. The 10 contributions seek to determine whether the law will achieve its stated objectives and with what side effects. The papers look at the likely impact of the law on interest groups, major donors, national and state parties, and party members as givers. Impacts on congressional incumbency and presidential elections are also discussed. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
