Dr. Lowi says we need a third party - a three-party system, that is - when America is loaded with third parties. Dr. Romance, on the other hand, says that the only problem is the recent one, "gridlock," and that the solution is "reform." Interestingly, although Lowi acknowledges that what America now has in the Democrat/Republican combine is a "duopoly," neither essayist proceeds on that assumption. Lowi keeps calling for a third party when the need under duopoly would be for a second, not third, party. And Romance takes us back to various won't-work remedies, all in an effort to "reform" a non-existent two-party system. However, the book does give a valuable look - flaws and all - at Partyism, a strange creature in itself, and I would recommend it.
This collection of essays provides a well-balanced debate on the state of the American political environment. Both authors argue their points well, but Lowi's arguements appear to be more relevant and applicable to the problems of the system as it now stands.
