This seminal work continues to offer a systematic account of what happens in congressional elections and demonstrates how electoral politics reflect and shape other components of our political system, with profound consequences for representative government.
Renowned political scientist and award-winning author Gary C. Jacobson analyzes how congressional campaigns and elections reflect deeper structural patterns and currents in American political life and help determine how-and how well-we are governed. The book traces the connections between electoral politics in Congress and other important political phenomena and makes questions of representation and responsibility its chief normative concern.
Jacobson (political science, U. of California-San Diego) systematically examines how congressional elections work, emphasizing how electoral politics reflect and shape other basic components of our political system. Updated through the 1998 elections and the impeachment politics of 1998 and 1999. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
