Buying the Vote

Buying the Vote: A History of Campaign Finance Reform

by Robert E. Mutch

Drawing on rarely studied archival materials, Buying the Vote analyzes the rise and decline of campaign finance reform by tracking changes in the way presidential campaigns have been funded since the late nineteenth century. Mutch's close examination of major Supreme Court decisions from U.S. v. CIO in 1948 to Citizens United in 2010 shows how the Court has fashioned a new and profoundly inegalitarian definition of American democracy. Buying the Vote is an illuminating look at politics, money, and power in America.
