This is what the authors call the "dynamic of third parties. Political observers of contemporary electoral politics missed the significance of Perot's independent campaign for the presidency in 1992. Furthermore, it set in motion a series of events that eventually changed the political landscape ill far-reaching and long-lasting ways.

It is also empowering for Third Party supporters and activist. 2 people found this helpful.

Three's a Crowd begins with the simple insight that third parties are creatures of the American two-party system, and derive their support from the failures of the Democratic and Republican parties. While third parties flash briefly in the gaps left by those failures, they nevertheless follow a familiar pattern: a sensation in one election, a disappointment in the next. Rapoport and Stone conclude that this steep arc results from one or both major parties successfully absorbing the third party's constituency

Ronald B. 2005 Rapoport and Stone conclude that this steep arc results from one or both major parties. Published by: University of Michigan Press. Rapoport and Stone conclude that this steep arc results from one or both major parties successfully absorbing the third party's constituency. In the first election, the third party raises new issues and defines new constituencies; in the second, the major parties move in on the new territory. But in appropriating the third party's constituents, the major parties open themselves up to change.

The Rolling Stone Album Guide. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. On the album, TG member Chris Carter recalled: "DoA showcased some of our strongest work and established the course we would head i. Pitchfork described the album as "a nauseating masterpiece, and an essential recording". All tracks are written by Throbbing Gristle (Genesis P-Orridge, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson), except as noted.

Three’s a Crowd explains what Rapoport calls the dynamic of third parties, the way that third parties identify issues overlooked by the major parties to attract significant numbers of voters. The book examines this dynamic and the ways in which the major parties respond. Excerpts from an interview with Rapoport appear below. Q: Why is Three’s a Crowd important? Rapoport: The focus really is in telling how third parties are an engine for important change in American politics. The Perot movement is a great example that we were able to study in detail to basically support our theory.

"A significant contribution to our understanding of minor parties and party system change. The authors develop a new theory and provide strong empirical evidence in support of it. They show that the Perot's candidacy has had a strong and lasting impact on partisan competition in elections. ---Paul Herrnson, Director, Center for American Politics and Citizenship Professor, Department of Government and Politics, University of Maryland"Powerfully persuasive in its exhaustive research, Three's a Crowd may surprise many by revealing the long- ignored but pivotal impact of Perot voters on every national election since 1992."---Clay Mulford, Jones Day and General Counsel to the 1992 Perot Presidential Campaign and to the Reform Party."Rapaport and Stone have written an engaging and important book. They bring fresh perspectives, interesting data, and much good sense to this project. Three's a Crowd is fundamentally about political change, which will, in turn, change how scholars and pundits think of Ross Perot in particular, and third parties in general."---John G. Geer, Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University and Editor of The Journal of Politics"The definitive analysis of the Perot movement, its role in the 1994 GOP victory, and the emergence of an enduring governing majority."---L. Sandy Maisel, Director, Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, Colby CollegeThree's a Crowd begins with the simple insight that third parties are creatures of the American two-party system, and derive their support from the failures of the Democratic and Republican parties.While third parties flash briefly in the gaps left by those failures, they nevertheless follow a familiar pattern: a sensation in one election, a disappointment in the next.

But in appropriating the third party's constituents, the major parties open themselves up to change. This is what the authors call the "dynamic of third parties."The Perot campaign exemplified this effect in 1992 and 1996. Political observers of contemporary electoral politics missed the significance of Perot's independent campaign for the presidency in 1992. Rapoport and Stone, who had unfettered-and unparalleled-access to the Perot political machine, show how his run perfectly embodies the third-party dynamic. Yet until now no one has considered the aftermath of the Perot movement through that lens.For anyone who seeks to understand the workings of our stubbornly two-party structure, this eagerly awaited and definitive analysis will shed new light on the role of third parties in the American political system.

This book provides well researched and analyzed evidence that confronts the myths surrounding Ross Perot's run in '92 and '96. This book is enlightening to anyone desiring reform in the Republican Party. It is also empowering for Third Party supporters and activist.

This is not only one of the most interesting books on the American political system that I've read over the years, but also one of the most accessible. Three's A Crowd is an exceptionally well-written and intellectual book that will appeal to academics, students, and the curious reader alike. Rapoport and Stone do an excellent job of developing their theory and supporting it with years of careful research. To anyone who has ever wondered why the American two-party system is the way that it is (and under what conditions that might be changed), I highly recommend this book.

Third parties have always interested me and I found that this book explained why and how they exist. It gave me a real understanding of what political circumstances will give rise to new party (what do we need to look out for!) I truly admired Ross Perot and this book explains his rise and fall objectively. They don't sugar-coat his candidacy, but they give it the respect it deserves.

This is the world's most boring term paper. Tedious, repetitive, lacking in narrative, stilted, overwrought...just terrible. I remember Perot's run well, and the dynamics of third-party candidates could be fascinating if delivered by writers and not academicians. Yes, we get it, one of the existing parties has to take advantage of the signals sent by a viable third-party candidate blah blah blah blah. Over and over and over.

The authors announce that third parties may make a difference in a presidential election. One wonders if Abe Lincoln could have benefited from this remarkable insight.
Thousands of words arranged in leaden and nearly indecipherable poli-sci English (?) brings forth not even a mouse. If only George Orwell were still living--what fun he would have reviewing this "acadaspeak".
O well, profs must publish, or they might perish-or take a meaningful job of work.In the latter case, at least the trees would gain.
