Overview

As a survey of the most current and significant issues affecting party politics in the United States, The Parties Respond has become a standard for reference and college course use. L. Sandy Maisel has drawn together leading scholars as well as party activists for original essays. The topics addressed include party organization, the changing relationship between parties and voters, the campaign and election process, and parties in government. The fourth edition offers has been revised by eliminating two chapters, adding a new chapter on the demise of the Reform Party in 2000, and a new chapter on campaign finance (and lack of reform).
