"The sixteen readings in this volume, all of which are newly selected for this fourth edition, and most of which are reproduced in their entirety, are organized around six debates: Why is voter turnout low, and why is it declining? Does the public's lack of political information matter? What determines the vote, and to what extent do campaigns matter? Is divided government intentional on the part of voters? How much does politics affect party identification? Is the party system changing? Niemi and Weisberg supply section introductions that weave the readings together, establish useful context, and help to sort out conflicting interpretations and diverging opinions that emerge across the chapters. Collectively, the readings and supporting essays in Controversies in Voting Behavior provide an illuminating look at some of the most lively and fascinating issues being debated in this field today." -- Publisher.
