Summary note
Buying the Vote: A History of Campaign Finance Reform analyzes the rise and decline of campaign finance reform by tracking changes in the funding of presidential campaigns and changes in the debate over reforming fundraising practices. An examination of Supreme Court decisions shows how the Court has fashioned a profoundly inegalitarian redefinition of American democracy.
