Campaign and Election Reform (Library in a Book)
Facts on File | 2004 | ISBN: 0816051364 | Pages: 256 | PDF | 1.30 MB
Grade 9 Up–Packed with information, this book lives up to its series title. Beginning with the Declaration of Independence and ending with the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, coverage includes the Electoral College and the complicated world of campaign-finance reform as well as the technology used to record individual voter records. Legislation and court cases that have determined the current electoral process in our country are reviewed, and explanations of the legal battles waged during the 2000 presidential election between George Bush and Al Gore are included. Brief biographies and a glossary in the middle of the book will familiarize users with names and terms that appear. One chapter outlines how to research related topics such as the media, court decisions, and the electoral system. The author also offers a bit of advice on how to evaluate a source for objectivity. An annotated topical bibliography and a contact list of state and federal agencies close the book. A solid one-stop resource.
