Cozy Politics: Political Parties, Campaign Finance, and Compromised Governance
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2002 - 273 halaman
Kobrak (public administration and political science, Western Michigan U.) distinguishes the traditional corruption of pork- barreling from cozy politics, which he says directly impacts the very nature of the political system and the relationship of citizens to their government. By cozy politics he means the reliance of politicians on big-money campaign contributions, and the political favors the contributors receive in turn. His solution is widespread citizen participation, encouraged by a restructuring of political parties and a more modest reworking of the government.
