    "La Raja avoids reformist rhetoric and skillfully analyzes the consequences of campaign finance reform for the political parties." ---Sandy Maisel, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Government, Colby College "The most thorough and up-to-date account of the historical evolution of campaign finance regulation in the United States available." ---Gary Jacobson, Professor of Political Science, University of California, San Diego "Ray La Raja gives us a superior investigation of campaign finance regulations and how they have affected the American political parties." ---Robert Mutch, Historian, and author ofCampaigns, Congress, and Courts: The Making of Federal Campaign Finance Law 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 Changeoffers an engaging account of campaign finance reforms' contradictory history; it is a must-read for anyone concerned about influence of money on democratic elections.
