Description

The Future of America's Political Parties tackles a question certain to occupy citizens and students of politics for years to come: Where do the parties stand in relation to their historic ideals, the voters, and each other? Specific issues include Democratic vulnerabilities on moral values and national security, Republican disillusionment with "compassionate conservatism", the challenges of the new campaign finance regimen, the future of party organization, and the role of cultural issues in the parties.show more
