The Guide to U.S. Elections is the single most comprehensive compilation of information about America's electoral process available to library patrons from scholars to high school students. Now, a completely updated and extensively reorganized edition chronicles the details of the landmark 2000 elections. New features include:
-- An expanded discussion of American political parties and their historical development
-- A new chapter on election campaign financing -- now the most controversial and widely criticized part of the system
-- A new chapter that describes the evolution of American elections, with particular emphasis on the modern period that began with President Roosevelt's New Deal political coalition.
-- In addition, the editors of the fourth edition have reorganized the Guide into two volumes to expand user access and to carry the reader through the electoral system in a logical progression.

Part I - Elections in America introduces the reader to U.S. elections and their history.

Part II -- Political Parties describes party development, profiles parties, explains campaign financing, examines the once dominant Southern primary, and summarizes politics and issues from 1945 to 2000 that have impacted election outcomes.

Part III -- Presidential Elections provides an extensive chronological history of these contests and gives a detailed examination of primaries, nominating conventions and the Electoral College.

Part IV -- Congressional Elections provides a complete history of Senate and House elections, including popular vote returns, and a clear examination of reapportionment that underlies state power in the House of Representatives.

Part V - GubernatorialElections is a complete examination of the election results for governors plus important side issues such as term limits and lengths and party lineups.

The Guide is extensively indexed and includes national maps showing winners and losers and many sidebars highlighting important election issues. No other volume contains the breadth of information about all national and gubernatorial elections ever held in America.
