Parties, Politics, and Public Policy in America

11th Edition

Other Titles in:
American Political Parties

December 2009 | 286 pages | CQ Press
With revitalized and stronger political parties should we see more effective and accountable government? Despite the resurgence of parties in America, charges of irresponsible and unreliable government remain. Why the disconnect? In Parties, Politics, and Public Policy in America, Marc Hetherington along with new coauthor Bruce Larson explore this question, while giving students an overview of how parties work and shape public policymaking in America. In this eleventh edition, Hetherington and Larson provide more in-depth coverage of the parties&BAD:rsquo; functions in Congress and campaign finance. In addition, the authors examine developments in the 2008 nomination and election contests&BAD:mdash;generational voting patterns, shifts in the red-blue divide, and the possibility of a partisan realignment. No other book for this course combines the breadth of scholarship with the brevity and accessibility found here.

Good for writing a paper, not necessary.
