Paul D. Schumaker, Burdett A. Loomis, "Choosing a President: The Electoral College and Beyond"
Chatham House Publishers | 2002-03-01 | ISBN: 1889119539 | 228 pages | PDF | 1,1 MB
In the midst of the controversy over Election 2000, this new book examines the electoral college and six alternatives to it, such as proportional allocation of electors (rather than winner-take-all electors within the states) and a national popular vote with an instant runoff. A team of expert political scientists consider the implications of the Electoral College and proposed reforms, answering such questions as: How would each reform affect our federal system of government, the workings of national governmental institutions, and our party system? What effect would reform have on the conduct of campaign organizations during elections and media coverage of campaigns, citizen participation, and the distribution of power? On the basis of deliberations each contributor indicates the extent to which he or she supports or opposes the Electoral College and the various alternatives to it. Features
Discussion of how the electoral college was created, evolved and currently works, providing fundamental historical and political knowledge.
Discussion of three reforms and three replacements of the Electoral College to offer a systematic account of current alternatives.
Demonstrates two modes of political analysis: (i) evaluating institutions and reforms according to their logical consistency with desired criteria, and (ii) evaluating institutions and reforms according to their (likely) consequences and implications. Helps improve students’ understanding of political analysis.
