Campaign Finance, In Depth

Anyone interested in the topic of campaign finance in politics should check out the new issue of "The Forum," a quarterly journal of political science co-edited by Raymond La Raja of UMass-Amherst. The issue carries the title "Has the US Campaign Finance System Collapsed?" Another local academic, Jennifer Steen of BC, contributes a piece on what to expect in financing of the 2008 Congressional elections. (Interesting observation: innovations in financing and spending may be stifled because the FEC currently lacks a quorum required to sanction them.) Michael Franz of Bowdoin has a piece on the role of interest groups. And there's much more.

You can get a guest pass to view articles at The Forum's page on the Berkeley Electronic Press web site.
