Book project: The Price of Proportional Voting
- Some observers of American politics say we should switch to proportional representation (PR). How might such a system work? How might it be enacted, and how long would it last? One way to know is to consult our own history, when 24 cities had proportional systems in the first half of the 20th century. I use roll-call and election data to analyze the politics of those episodes -- both where PR was in place and where it did not catch on. In America, PR appears as an attack on political parties but demands party-like discipline in government.
