The State of the Parties: The Changing Role of Contemporary American Parties by John C. Green, Daniel J. Coffey

Every four years, The State of the Parties brings readers up to date on party action in election years and in between. With the dual themes of continuity and change characterizing the new edition, this essential party primer includes: three new chapters on party roles in the 2008 election, a section on the impact of party resources for the campaign, extensive coverage of party mobilization efforts via the Internet and local activity, and new chapters covering topics ranging from Republicans' fall from grace to party governance under Nancy Pelosi to President Obama's role in party politics, and as always, a distinguished roster of contributors. List of Contributors: John R. Petrocik, Howard L. Reiter, John S. Jackson III, David Magleby, Melanie J. Blumberg, William C. Binning, Melody Crowder-Meyer, Daniel M. Shea, Ronald B. Rapoport, Kira C. Allmann, Daniel Maliniak, Barbara Trish, Michael J. Malbin, Aaron Dusso, Gregory Fortelny, Brendan Glavin, Raymond J. La Raja, Costas Panagopoulos, J. Quin Monson, Kelly D.
