This volume explores such timely topics as campaign finance and the corporate funding of elections and investigates the effects of SCOTUS's ruling to roll back aspects of the Voting Rights Act, allowing states to make their own election laws without federal oversight. Other discussions include the rise of one-party domination of state government and the subsequent, unprecedented gerrymandering of districts; the use of referendums to mobilize political bases; and the changing uses of social media in campaigns.
