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 polarization and invation characterizing the new edition, this essential party primer includes: four new chapters on party resources, a greatly expanded section on public opinion, coverage of party efforts to mobilize the youth vote, thirteen new chapters covering topics ranging from the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act to Deaniacs and Democrats to The Rise of the Right, and as always, a distinguished roster of contributors.
