Department of shameless self-congratulation and -promotion: The 23 academic political scientists and staffers for NCSL, the Council of State Governments and the State Legislative Leaders Foundation who participated in the four-year Joint Project on Term Limits are pleased that our book, Institutional Change in American Politics: The Case of Term Limits, reporting the results of our research has now been published by University of Michigan Press. The book was edited by Bruce Cain of University of California, Berkeley, Richard G. Niemi of University of Rochester and myself.
You can find a summary and table of contents for the book here and nice blurbs about it here (we especially liked the one by Bernard Grofman). And if you prefer, you can read Coping with Term Limits: A Practical Guide, a 30-pp. condensed version of the book (which is 230 pp.) aimed at practitioners rather than academics. We blogged about the release of Coping with Term Limits a year ago.
Institutional Change in American Politics is #436,005 on Amazon.com's best-seller list. Don't look for an authors' tour at a bookstore near you anytime soon.
