Political parties and democratic politics go hand in hand. Since parties matter, it matters too when elected politicians change party affiliation. This book shows when, when, and to what effect politicians switch parties in pursuit of their goals, as constrained by institutions and in response to their environments. The contributors examine diverse settings, from Europe to Israel, from the United States to Japan, from Russia to Brazil. They also integrate formal and empirical approaches in political science. The book demonstrates that taking party switching seriously enriches the understanding of political parties, legislative politics, policy making, and democratic representation.

William B. Heller is Associate Professor of Political Science at Binghamton University.

Carol Mershon is Associate Professor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. Mershon's research examines intraparty competition, the dynamics of party systems, the politics of multiparty government, and legislative politics.
