9781588263292: Law and Election Politics: The Rules of the Game

How much money can a candidate for political office legally collect, and from what sources? What can and can't be said in campaign ads? Who determines the process of redistricting, and what is the overall effect on U.S. democracy? Law and Election Politics analyzes the rules of the electoral game, helping readers to understand how politics influences and is influenced by electoral laws and court rulings. The authors address the most important, and sometimes controversial, decisions that the courts have made on campaign finance, political parties, issue advocacy, voting, campaigning, redistricting, and judicial elections. The result is an engaging and accessible study of how election laws and politics intertwine.
