Sixteen newly selected readings from 1992-2001 examine US debates and data on six key issues: why voter turnout continues to be low, the impact of public lack of political information, what determines the vote, voters seeming preference for divided government, how politics affects party identification, and the party system in transition. Political scientists Niemi (U. of Rochester) and Weisberg (Ohio State U.) provide section introductions. c. Book News Inc.
