Review by Choice Review
Epstein (Wisconsin), the distinguished author of the leading comparative treatise (Political Parties in Western Democracies, CH, Jun '68), here delivers a discerning commentary not only on the state of the contemporary American party system, but also on the very substantial corpus of political science writing on the subject. As a guide to the literature, Epstein is broadly inclusive, scrupulously fair-minded, historically learned, and full of common sense. Among the many significant works on contemporary American political parties that have been produced in recent years, this is one of the most valuable for students, teachers, and educated citizens. Fully annotated and indexed. For students and general readers.-N.W. Polsby, John F. Kennedy School of Government/Harvard University
