Mr. Sifry discusses his book, Spoiling for a Fight: Third-Party Politics in America, published by Routledge. In it, the author documents the history of third-party politics in American history, with particular attention paid to Ralph Nader’s 2000 Presidential Campaign. The author calls the existing U.S. political system a duopoly, which prevents the smaller third-parties from any successful runs for office. After the presentation the author answered questions from members of the audience. close
