Redistricting in the New Millennium
Politics, and the redistricting process through which it is carried out, has always been part of our history. In the last four decades, however, the frequency with which redistricting has taken place has grown dramatically. Through a series of theoretical, historical, and case study essays by leading scholars, Redistricting in the New Millennium addresses the complications of redistricting from before the 1812 plan setting gerrymandering to the latest Congressional races. The essays take the reader through the complicated issues of redistricting, addressing partisan, incumbent, racial, and judicial concerns. The book is essential for students of politics as well as anyone interested in the political process.
