The New American Political System Summary


The New American Political System by Edited by Anthony King

An assessment of current changes in the American political system in recent decades. The author discusses such issues as the character of the contemporary congress, the Supreme Court as a part of the government, the development of a candidate-centred as opposed to a partisan electorate. The stability of political parties is examined and the degree of party centralization is assessed. The development of interest groups in Washington has resulted in a plethora of groups which appear to have less power. The book also examines the importance of federalism in the modern USA.
