The authors of this new book on American political parties provide innovative coverage of information technology. Grounding their coverage in the historical debates between Alexander Hamilton, who believed in a nationally focused system, and Thomas Jefferson, who wanted local communities to be the dominant force, White and Shea trace the evolution of parties from the late 18th century through the Information Age.
