Every now and then a book of modest size appears that challenges conventional political wisdom. This is that kind of book. The authorsone an academic and the other a party professionalchart the recent revitalization of America's national party organizations. No longer empty shells or institutions in decline and without power, the parties now have matured as both electoral and governing institutions. Electoral reforms and federal legislation not only have helped make the parties organizationally and professionally stronger but also have put them back into the business of controlling nominations (except at the presidential level) and, in the long run, influencing public policy. This is a far-ranging analysis of the political rebirth of American party organizations and an important contribution to the literature. Edward C. Dreyer, Political Science Dept., Univ. of Tulsa
