Editorial Reviews

These essays contain a wealth of significant information and perceptive analysis relating to national political organizations with emphasis on the Republican experience. The special virtue of the volume is the fact that the authors are people with first-hand knowledge of their subjects drawn from personal involvement and close observation. The book will reward not only students of the party system but also any citizen who, like Ross Perot, wants a look 'under the hood' at a part of the engine of government.
