Donald Green's book is no "political science tract," rather it is an informative and enjoyable work to read. The narrative flow is smooth, clear, and logical. He is a good writer! Green resurrects old memories of colorful and notorious third party characters, like Theodore Roosevelt, George Wallace, and Ross Perot, and he gives Ralph Nader fair treatment. Green's criteria for extended review limit his discussion of Eugene Debs and Norman Thomas, but these important Americans aren't forgotten. Green concludes with some speculation on the possibility of a new "centrist" third party forming from moderate Republicans, independents, and conservative Democrats. My view is that another possibility for a third party is the "Progressive Democratic Party," a current attempt to unite the Green Party, the Left of the Democratic Party, and the various Left sectarian parties. Perhaps in the near future there will be a third, or forth, party available for Americans to have a real choice in real democratic elections. Donald Green's work definitely helps to facilitate such a democratic choice.
