The study of electoral realignments is one of the most influential and intellectually stimulating enterprises undertaken by American political scientists. Realignment theory has been seen as a science able to predict changes, and generations of students, journalists, pundits, and political scientists have been trained to be on the lookout for "signs" of new electoral realignments. Now a major political scientist argues that the essential claims of realignment theory are wrong - that American elections, parties, and policy making are not (and never were) reconfigured according to the realignment calendar. David R. Mayhew is Sterling Professor of Political Science at Yale University.

The Yale ISPS Series

From the Back Cover:

"This elegant volume is a profoundly subversive book in an intellectually positive sense, delivering a body blow to a highly influential scholarly literature and preparing the way for more productive inquiry. No student of political parties can ignore it." -Fred Greenstein, Princeton University

"This is a provocative book that challenges reigning orthodoxy. It should be required reading for all serious observers of American politics." -Darrell M. West, Brown University
