Summary The amount of money flowing through U.S. politics continues to astound. ""While not all expenditures are reported, "" writes David Magleby, ""our best estimate is that at least 8 billion was spent in the 2012 federal elections."" In this essential volume, the latest in aquadrennial series dating back to 1960, Magleby and his colleagues reveal where all this the money came from, where it went, what were the results-and why it matters. Anthony Corrado examines the most important changes and legal challenges to the law and regulation of campaign finance leading up to the 2012 election. John Green,
