About

Overview

This release provides the only authoritative survey of the history, evolution, and current state of major and minor political parties in the United States at both the state and national levels. This new, thoroughly revised edition expands and updates the coverage contained in three award-winning titles from Sharpe Reference: Encyclopedia of the Democratic/Republican Party (1997), supplements to both parts of that set (2002), and the Encyclopedia of Third Parties in America (2000). All content has been reviewed, revised, and updated to create one seamless, cross-searchable, digital product. This title covers the history of major political parties in America, past and present; the organization, operation, and cultures of the two major parties and the party system; major party views on specific issues and legislative policies; 100 notable third parties and alternative political movements from the 18th to the 21st centuries; major party conventions and platforms (full-text); national election summaries and statistics; individual state party portraits and statistics; and biographical sketches of more than 250 political leaders.
