Before the convention : strategies and choices in Presidential nomination campaigns by John H Aldrich( Book )

17 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Campaigns to win the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations are longer, more complex, and more confusing to the observer than the general election itself. The maze of delegate-selection procedures includes state primaries and caucuses as well as the traditional ""smoke-filled room."" Complicated federal election laws govern campaign financing.

Why parties? : a second look by John H Aldrich( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveying critical episodes in the development of American political parties--from their formation in the 1790s to the Civil War--Aldrich shows how they serve to combat three fundamental problems of democracy: how to regulate the number of people seeking public office, how to mobilize voters, and how to achieve and maintain the majorities needed to accomplish goals once in office. Aldrich brings this innovative account up to the present by looking at the profound changes in the character of political parties since World War II, especially in light of ongoing contemporary transformations, including the rise of the Republican Party in the South, and what those changes accomplish, such as the Obama Health Care plan. Finally, Why Parties? A Second Look offers a fuller consideration of party systems in general, especially the two-party system in the United States, and explains why this system is necessary for effective democracy."(Provided by publisher)
