In its examination of congressional elections and politics, Gary Jacobson’s classic text makes connections to broader themes and fundamental questions about representation and responsibility.
Brought completely up-to-date with the latest data from the National Election Study and the Federal Election Commission, and including coverage and analysis of the 2008 and 2010 elections, this seminal work continues to offer a systematic account of what goes on in congressional elections and demonstrates how electoral politics reflect and shape other components of the political system, with profound consequences for representative government.
