In this authoritative study, three political scientists demonstrate that identification with political parties powerfully determines how citizens look at politics and cast their ballots.
"Partisan Hearts and Minds is a profound breakthrough in our understanding of partisan loyalties and makes a major contribution to the study of political attitudes and voting behavior."—Paul Abramson, Michigan State University
"This book will be influential the moment it appears. It will be the starting point for all further treatments of the topic."—Richard Johnston, University of British Columbia
"The grounding of partisanship in social identities is the most important theoretical contribution to the study of partisanship in the last two decades."—Morris P. Fiorina, Stanford University

Donald Green is A. Whitney Griswold Professor of Political Science and director of the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University. Bradley Palmquist has taught at Harvard University and Vanderbilt University. Eric Schickler is professor of government at Harvard University.

“Instructors looking for a recent treatment of party identification—both theoretical and empirical—will find no better text. It is both accessible and rigorous.”—Barry C. Burden, Associate Professor, Harvard University

“One may disagree with the authors on significant points, but the grounding of partisanship in social identities is the most important theoretical contribution to the study of partisanship in the last two decades.”—Morris P. Fiorina, Professor of Political Science, Stanford University

Partisan Hearts and Minds is a profound breakthrough in our understanding of partisan loyalties and makes a major contribution to the study of political attitudes and voting behavior.”—Paul Abramson, Michigan State University

“This book will be influential the moment it appears. It will be the starting point for all further treatments of the topic.”—Richard Johnston, University of British Columbia

"This book sets forth an argument with which all future serious studies of partisanship must contend. Although most appropriate for graduate students and faculty, it is important reading for political professionals as well. Highly recommended. Graduate collections and above."—Choice
