I'm delighted that Oxford University Press has published my new book Ballot Battles: The History of Disputed Elections in the United States. I've collected links to last week's blogging related to the book's release.

Clinton, Sanders and the changing face of the Democratic Party

Professor David Stebenne wrote an op-ed for The Conversation describing how a recent debate between Democratic Party presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders highlighted changes in the Democratic Party over the past half-century.

“Last week’s debate in New Hampshire between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over who is the “real progressive” said a lot about how they and the Democratic Party have changed over the past half-century,” Stebenne said.

“When Clinton and Sanders first came of age politically during the mid-1960s, neither was a natural fit for the Democrats as the party was then.

“Taking a look at how these two very different people and the party they now want to lead have evolved can help clarify the philosophical divide on display in the Democratic Party today.”
