Placing Parties in American Politics: Organization, Electoral Settings, and Government Activity in the Twentieth Century

This work on the structure of American parties combines the breadth that has been characteristic of voter analysis and the richness found in case studies of local party organizations. In a series of fifty sketches of the American states, David Mayhew maps local parties as of the late 1960’s, from city and county machines and lesser patronage-based organizations to amateur club movements, municipal good government groups, and Minnesota’s unusual Democratic-Farmer-Labor apparatus.
