This book presents an examination of ten major and controversial issues directly affecting the American presidential selection process. These issues are addressed in a point-counterpoint format to promote lively discussion and scholarly debate. The Introduction argues that the modern process of presidential selection has evolved to a point of crisis and that collapse appears imminent, while the Conclusion endorses a proposal that may serve as the first step toward improving the process. The entire process of presidential selection is included here: the nominating phase, the convention phase, and the general election phase.
