The Twenty-Eighth Amendment? Beyond Abolishing the Electoral College
Gatekeeper Press 2020
In February, retired University of Kansas professor of political science Paul Schumaker published this book about the past, present, and future of the Electoral College, written for a general audience.
Months later, he updated it to suggest presidential electoral reforms that would improve U.S. governance and cope more effectively with the pandemic, subsequent economic and educational shutdowns, and the racial unrest that have arisen since his book was first released.
Using an accessible narrative form, and with decades of experience—he taught courses in American democracy for 45 years—he traces the evolution of his thinking using strong analogies and examples from the past and present.
