Multiparty Politics in America / Edition 1by Paul S. Herrnson, John C. Green, David S. Broder
Pub. Date: 12/28/1997
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
In the wake of Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, and other "third" party and independent candidates that ran in the 1996 election, this collection of original essays by leading political scientists and third party officials is must reading for individuals interested in American politics. "Multiparty Politics in America" examines the roles that third parties have played in U.S. elections past and present and their prospects for the future. It presents unique and detailed coverage of the Reform, Green, and Libertarian parties' goals and campaign strategies; discusses the kinds of reforms that would help them become more viable; and advances the debate over whether the U.S. should have a two-party or multiparty system.
Author Biography: Paul S. Herrnson is professor of government and politics at the University of Maryland. John C. Green is director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute for Applied Politics at the University of Akron.
