Congress: The Electoral Connection
October 1, 2014

David Mayhew has been chosen to be the guest lecturer for the Annual Parthemos Lecture at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia.  

Dr. Mayhew is one of the world’s leading authorities on American party politics and Congress and this year marks the 40th anniversary of his landmark book, Congress: The Electoral Connection.

In the book, which has now achieved canonical status, David R. Mayhew argues that the principal motivation of legislators is reelection and that the pursuit of this goal affects the way they behave and the way that they make public policy.
