Nancy Lind and Erik Rankin from the Department of Politics and Government have co-edited a volume with Gardenia Harris titled Today’s Economic Issues: Democrats and Republicans.

The volume has been published by ABC-CLIO in the “Across the Aisle” series.

Examining the two parties’ respective policies, the book provides a detailed look at how the parties agree, disagree, and find compromise on the broad range of problems and issues facing American society in the 21st century. It also examines the degree to which the behavior of the parties—the laws they pass and oppose—actually match their stated policy positions and philosophies.
