Overview

The New Campaign Finance Sourcebook has been integrated with the award-winning and frequently visited Brookings website to provide a timely, interactive tool for policymakers, journalists, and scholars. Four of the country's leading experts on campaign finance reform have contributed original essays on important facets of finance law and administration. The essays are accompanied by a list of corresponding documents available on the website.

The book offers a thorough overview and analysis of this highly controversial issue, including the history of campaign finance regulation and the current state of the law, current practices and trends in the flow of money, the constitutional debate, the use of political party money, issue advocacy, public financing of presidential elections, implementing and enforcing campaign finance laws, and campaigning on the internet. The authors conclude with a broad overview of alternative approaches to reform.

The related website (www.brookings.edu/campaignfinance) features sidebars that correspond to the book's chapters as well as associated documents. The site is frequently updated with recent developments in campaign finance regulation and analyses of current court cases and administrative decisions. There are also links to advisory opinions from the Federal Elections Commission, nonprofit organizations that study reform, and related publications-.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For those seeking to understand the broader impacts of recent and extensive changes in US campaign finance laws, this book...is comprehensive, authoritative and timely. It may well be the definitive work to date, offering readers detailed analysis of the impacts of BCRA on US campaign finance from the more obvious (changes in finance disclosure laws and party finances) to the more obscure (election law and the Internet). The New Campaign Finance Sourcebook is coherent in its argument and tone, and well written--no small feat for a multi-author book.... The New Campaign Finance Sourcebook will no doubt become the 'required-reading' starting point for any contemporary debate on the current US campaign finance system, just as the previous edition was in its day." —Todd A. Eisenstadt, American University, Party Politics
