The Four Faces of the Republican Party clearly describes how Republican Presidential minating contests unfold. Its focus on party factions allows readers to understand the process and to predict who the eventual minee will be. In particular, the authors explore why a conservative party always minates candidates favored by the party's establishment and why evangelical conservatives always emerge as one of the two final contenders for the mination. This book is essential reading for anyone - professor, student, journalist, consultant, or candidate - who wishes to understand, report on, or influence a Republican Presidential mination contest.
