Summary

This book will prepare readers for the redistricting of congressional, state legislative, and local collegial bodies that will follow the 2010 Census. Almost every state legislature will devote extensive time to redrawing its own districts along with the state's congressional districts during 2010-2012. In addition, Charles S. Bullock reviews major court decisions that have set standards for redistricting, illustrates various gerrymandering techniques with helpful maps, and considers the consequences of past redistricting decisions.
