Party Politics in America (Longman Classics in Political Science) (15th Edition) (Pearson Classics in Political Science (Quality))
Updated in its 15th edition, Party Politics in America examines the impact of the Tea Party, the battles over the rights of public employees’ unions, the effects of Citizens United and Super PACs on congressional and presidential campaigns, and much more.
Long regarded as the gold standard of parties texts, Party Politics in America has remained a best-seller because of the care and attentiveness with which each edition is written. Building upon the work of Frank Sorauf and Paul Allen Beck, Marjorie Hershey has maintained the book’s three-pronged coverage of party organization, party in the electorate, and party in government while also introducing contemporary and historical examples to bring to life the fascinating story of how parties have helped to shape our political system.
