From the Publisher"A valuable historical perspective … Stonecash demonstrates that the decline and reemergence of the connection between presidential and US House elections over the past sixty years was a product of shifts in the ideological underpinnings of the American party system - driven by party leaders. A must read for anyone wanting to understand our current polarized party system."
Alan Abramowitz, Emory University
"Stonecash has unified previously divergent findings by taking a simple but often untried tack. His book looks at elections from the point of view of the parties that shape campaigns, instead of merely from the point of view of voters who respond to them."
Hans Noel, Georgetown University
"Stonecash challenges the notion that the connection between presidential and congressional elections has been irrevocably frayed by the advent of candidate-centered politics … This is a well-researched book that creates a new interpretation of events … Highly recommended. General readers, undergraduate students, graduate students, and research faculty."
