This is a sequel to Ferguson and Rogers's anthology of studies that examined the 1980 presidential election ( The Hidden Election, LJ 10/1/81). This new study focuses on both the party-electoral system of of the past and its likely future. The authors claim that over the past several years public policy and the party system have moved to the right while public opinon has remained essentially stable and left-of-centera pattern they foresee as continuing regardless of which party occupies the White House. What may be of greatest interest and controversy is the new "investment perspective" the authors employ to explain these changes. For informed laypeople and specialists. Edward C. Dreyer, Political Science Dept., Univ. of Tulsa, Okla.
