What People are Saying About This

Michael J. Malbin

Many of us thought we already understood congressional campaign contributors from press accounts and from the 'obvious facts' that 'leap out' from official disclosure records. It turns out – why are we surprised – that contributors'motivations have more nuance than we had seen. This is an important book, well researched and crafted, about some very important people. It belongs on the shelf on every serious student of U.S. elections.
