As a survey of the most current and significant issues affecting party politics in the United States, The Parties Respondhas become a classic resource for reference and college courses. Mark D. Brewer and L. Sandy Maisel draw together leading scholars to contribute thirteen original essays discussing partisanship in the electorate, parties and the media revolution, the campaign and election process, parties in government, and much more. The fifth edition is significantly revised with twelve new chapters, bringing each of these topics up to date for the modern political arena and highlighting the many changes in party politics over the past ten years.
Mark D. Brewer is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Maine, and he received his Ph.D. in political science from Syracuse University. L. Sandy Maisel is William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Government and director of the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement at Colby College.
