Explores the current status of campaign finance reform in the United States, including strategies that promote fair political campaigns such as public funding, spending caps and media regulation. Examines efforts to prevent partisan political redistricting; and looks at recent influential developments like small-donor fundraising and use of the internet in campaigns.From Booklist:
These Opposing Viewpoints titles confirm the series’ enduring reputation as one of the top choices for students seeking substantive, mind-broadening introductions to complex societal issues. Each title follows the series’ template of thematically organized article excerpts, accompanied by guiding questions and periodical bibliographies of additional reading suggestions, while graphs and political cartoons offer some visual interest. As always, the editors have chosen selections from reputable, wide-ranging sources that represent highly engaging and sometimes provocative views. Political Campaigns presents factors that may promote and hinder fair campaigns, including the perennial issue of redistricting and recent technological developments, such as Internet donations. These titles will equip students with subtle, nuanced perspectives on the specific issues, even as they serve as a reminder to base personal opinion on informed research and debate. Grades 8-12. --Gillian Engberg
