Students of American government are faced with an enduring dilemma: Why two parties? Why has this system remained largely intact while around the world democracies support multiparty systems? Should our two-party system continue as we enter the new millennium? Two Parties - Or More? answers these questions by first placing the dilemma in the context of recent elections - at both the state and federal level - and by defining the types of minor parties and the roles they play. The authors then provide a historical overview of minor parties - including such transient groups as the Know Nothings and the Greenbacks - and the roles they played in moving major parties on issue spectrums

Evaluating campaign quality : can the electoral process be improved? by Louis Sandy Maisel( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a number of years, voters and academic observers have been dissatisfied with a number of elements of American campaigns. Contemporary races are seen as too negative, too superficial, and too unfair or misleading. Based on these complaints, a variety of reform organizations have targeted millions of dollars to improve the situation. Through their efforts and those within the academic community, a wide range of reform initiatives have been undertaken, such as voluntary codes of conduct, industry self-regulation, certificate programs, tougher ethics rules for consultants, and the encouragement of more substantive venues. This book seeks to evaluate whether these activities have improved the level of campaign discourse and conduct in US House and Senate campaigns and argues that while individual reform efforts have achieved some of their stated objectives, the overall effect of these reform efforts has been disappointing
