At first glance, campaign finance reform looks like a good idea. McCain-Feingold, for instance, regulates campaigns by prohibiting national political parties from accepting soft money contributions from corporations, labor unions, and wealthy individuals. But are such measures, or any of the numerous and similarly restrictive proposals that have circulated through Washington in recent years, really good for our democracy? John Samples says no, and here he takes a penetrating look into the premises and consequences of the long crusade against big money in politics. How many Americans, he asks, know that there is little to no evidence that campaign contributions really influence members of Congress? Or that so-called negative political advertising actually improves the democratic process by increasing voter turnout and knowledge? Or that limits on campaign contributions make it harder to run for office, thereby protecting incumbent representatives from losing their seats of power? Posing tough questions such as these, Samples uncovers numerous fallacies beneath proposals for campaign finance reform. He argues that our most common concerns about money in politics are misplaced because the ideals implicit in our notion of corruption are incoherent or indefensible. The chance to regulate money in politics allows representatives to serve their own interests at a cost to their constituents. And, ironically, this long crusade against the corruption caused by campaign contributions allows public officials to reduce their vulnerability by suppressing electoral competition. Defying long-held ssumptions and conventional political wisdom, The Fallacy of Campaign Finance Reform is a provocative and decidedly nonpartisan work that will be essential for anyone concerned about the future of American government.



Interest Groups and Campaign Finance Reform in the United States and Canada

"In the early 2000s, the United States and Canada implemented new campaign finance laws restricting the ability of interest groups to make political contributions and to engage in political advertising. Whereas both nations' legislative reforms sought to reduce the role of interest groups in campaigns, these laws have had opposite results in the two nations. In the United States, interest groups remained influential by developing broad coalitions aimed at mobilizing individual voters and contributors. In Canada, interest groups largely withdrew from election campaigns, and thus, important voices in elections have gone silent. Robert G. Boatright explains such disparate results by placing campaign finance reforms in the context of ongoing political and technological changes."--Back cover.

The Campaigns & Elections market is approximately 20,000 students per year, though enrollments tend to fluctuate based on the election cycle. The course is offered at least every election year at most four-year schools, and frequently once per year. Campaigns & Elections is sometimes taught as a standalone course (especially in large research universities where there are a number of faculty who teach in the political behavior area), and sometimes in combination with other political behavior topics. The combination courses, taken primarily by upper level Poli Sci majors, are almost as common as the single-topic courses.

Reformers lament that, with every effort to regulate the sources of campaign funding, candidates creatively circumvent the new legislation. But in fact, political fundraisers don't need to look for loopholes because, as Raymond J. La Raja proves, legislators intentionally design regulations to gain advantage over their partisan rivals. La Raja traces the history of the U.S. campaign finance system from the late nineteenth century through the passage of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) of 2002. Then, using the 2004 presidential election as a case study, he compares the ways in which Democrats and Republicans adapted their national fund-raising and campaigning strategies to satisfy BCRA regulations. Drawing upon this wealth of historical and recent evidence, he concludes with recommendations for reforming campaign finance in ways that promote fair competition among candidates and guarantee their accountability to voters. Small Change offers an engaging account of campaign finance reforms' contradictory history; it is a must-read for anyone concerned about influence of money on democratic elections.

Σ’ αυτό το εκπληκτικό μυθιστόρημα ο Καρλ Ούβε Κνάουσγκορντ αναμετράται με την ίδια του τη ζωή με επώδυνη ειλικρίνεια. Γράφει για τα παιδικά χρόνια και την εφηβεία του, το πάθος του για τη ροκ μουσική, τη σχέση του με μια σχεδόν ανύπαρκτη μητέρα που όμως αγαπούσε, αλλά και τον απόμακρο, απρόβλεπτο πατέρα του, ο θάνατος του οποίου επέφερε όχι μόνο οδύνη αλλά και σύγχυση. Από τη στιγμή που ο Καρλ Ούβε γίνεται και ο ίδιος γονιός πρέπει να εξισορροπήσει τις απαιτήσεις που έχει η φροντίδα μιας οικογένειας με την αποφασιστικότητά του να γράψει σπουδαία λογοτεχνία. Με το Ένας θάνατος στην οικογένεια, το πρώτο μέρος μιας εξάτομης λογοτεχνικής αυτοβιογραφίας που έχει προκαλέσει παγκόσμια αίσθηση, ο Κνάουσγκορντ συνέθεσε μια πανανθρώπινη ιστορία για τις συγκρούσεις, με τις οποίες ερχόμαστε αντιμέτωποι στη ζωή μας, σ’ αυτόν τον αγώνα που είναι η ζωή μας. Ένα βιβλίο απολύτως σαγηνευτικό, ικανό να συμπαρασύρει τον ευαίσθητο αναγνώστη, γραμμένο με μια βραδυφλεγή ένταση, σαν να εξαρτάται από αυτό η ίδια η ύπαρξη του συγγραφέα. Το πρώτο βιβλίο της μυθιστορηματικής σειράς Ο αγώνας μου.
