Praise for the Second Edition
Super PACs, mega-donors, grassroots activists fueled by social media, a Twitter-crazed president, and alternative facts. Where are the political parties in this unstable and occasionally toxic mixture? John Kenneth White and Matthew R. Kerbel give us an excellent analysis and keen insight into today’s national political parties. This new edition of their important book is highly recommended.
Dennis W. Johnson, George Washington University
In this excellent new edition of their book, John White and Matthew Kerbel once again demonstrate that change can only be appreciated and understood in the context of what has come before. In the era of Donald Trump and social media, Democrats and Republicans both face a myriad of new challenges. The authors present historical context to establish convincingly that, in many ways, we’ve been here before and the parties have managed to adapt. In spite of all the new challenges, they remain optimistic that the parties―and the democracy they serve―can and will weather the current storms.
Robert Harmel, Texas A&M University
This new edition by White and Kerbel is an expert effort to explain the bewildering changes in party politics in the age of Trump. As―or if―we recover our bearings, we will gain much from their historical and empirical pathways through America's new and unexplored terrain.
Gerald Pomper, Rutgers University
