The Test of Time moves beyond the realm of speculation and punditry to analyze the observable and measurable effects of the early experiences of state legislature term limits. Setting the agenda for future term limits studies, this volume brings together fifteen outstanding empirical studies, contributed by top political scientists and state policymakers. Five of the essays―case studies of key states―offer depth and context for understanding the shifting institutional changes wrought by term limits at the state level. The remaining chapters develop these findings through cross-state comparisons that examine how legislatures, legislators, and political linkages―such as lobbying and electoral competition―have been affected by the imposition of legislative term limits. Supported by a comprehensive annotated bibliography of term limits literature and a history of the term limits movement, this work will be an enduring resource for academics teaching courses in state government and practitioners either experiencing term limits or preparing for term limits to take effect.

Review:

Scholars and students alike will want this book for the detailed analysis of the term-limits movement and for the careful application of that analysis to legislative theories. This book pulls together all that we know and establishes where our research should move next. (Gary Copeland, University of Oklahoma)

This is a valuable, well-designed study that provides some of the first answers about how the term limits movement of the 1990s will affect state politics in the future. (Todd Donovan, Western Washington University)

The enactment of legislative term limits gave political scientists an extraordinary opportunity to study the impact of a fundamental change. The Test of Time provides an important benchmark and assessment of this change. The book is rich in case studies, comparisons across states, and evaluations of broader implications; and it provides a wonderful annotated bibliography. The book is an important contribution. (David B. Magleby)

The Test of TIme is an important contribution to the already considerable literature on tern limits. The editors have brought together a number of sober and carefully researched papers that should give pause to those who predicted that term limits were destined to remake America's politics, for good or ill. (Public Choice)

These important studies and an extensive annotated bibliography of previous research on term limits make this collection a good starting point for any serious future research on the topic. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

After ten years of speculation about the effects of term limits, we now have some evidence. The contributors to this useful collection have worked systematically to produce an intriguing analysis. (Alan Rosenthal, Eagleton Institute of Politics, Rutgers University)
