This book brings together the ideas of today's most prominent supporters, critics, and opponents of the electoral college. Along with critical documents that provide historical background and demonstrate the evolution of debates over the legitimacy of this American institution, Judith Best and Thomas E. Cronin together with the testimony of Lawrence D. Longley, analyze the electoral college from a variety of perspectives and propose a wide range of alternatives, from maintaining the status quo to imposing radical reform.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[This] careful analysis of the multidimensional arguments that have swirled around the electoral college for two centuries is presented clearly and cogently . . . should be read carefully by those familiar with the debate and especially by those who are not. -- James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University
A comprehensive, valuable work for all students of the American governmental system. -- R. Gordon Hoxie, Chairman and CEO, Center for the Study of the Presidency
It is probably asking too much to expect this volume to put an end to the perennial debate over the electoral college, but it does lay out the arguments, both for and against it. And if, on balance, its proponents make the better case, so be it. -- Walter Berns, John M. Olin University Professor, Georgetown University
A rich collection of essays and reference information enlivening the continuing debate over how to elect the people's president. -- Lawrence D. Longley, Lawrence University
It is altogether an attractive teaching package. * Booknotes *
