It explores topics ranging from political donations and expenditures, lobbying, the Supreme Court and campaign finance law, and the specific way groups, individuals, and organizations use money to secure their objectives. The book concentrates mostly on recent trends and elections to understanding the impact of money on politics, including discussion that takes one though the 2016 elections.”

They cover major court cases, specific recent elections, concepts, people, and trends that describe money’s use and impact in American politics.
