In this landmark book, one of America's most distinguished political scientists explores the dynamics and consequences of campaign finance in America and explodes many myths about this widely debated subject." "Frank J. Sorauf provides balanced and informative commentary on such critical issues in campaign financing as: the growing problems of regulating American campaign finance under the post-Watergate legislation of 1974; the forces that affect the supply of money available for campaigning, from economic conditions to the competitiveness of elections; the increasing power of incumbent candidates in the two-way exchange between candidates and contributors; political learning and the search for ways to avoid the laws on campaign finance; the myths and realities about the role and influence of PACs; the vanishing funds for public funding of the presidential campaigns; the new middlemen and brokers " ;
