America's Choice 2000

Synopsis

Elections are the single most critical event in democratic governance. They make democracy possible. The elections of 2000 will be among the most contentious and compelling of recent times. Who wins and why? What are the salient issues? Winning or losing strategies? What are politics of the races? What is the significance of the outcomes? In Entering a New Millenium, Crotty and the essayists provide eight original, authoritative accounts of what has taken place, and accessible analyses of the dynamics underlying the process. Essayists and their topics include: John Tierney on the political context, M. Margaret Conway on political participation in 2000, Crotty on the presidential primaries, Jerome Mileur on the presidential general election, John Jackson on the Congressional races, Malcolm Jewell and Sarah Morehouse on key state and local elections.
