David Samuels and Matt Shugart’s book Presidents, Parties, and Prime Ministers: How the Separation of Powers Affects Party Organization and Behavior, has been awarded the American Political Science Association’s (APSA) Representation and Electoral Systems George H. Hallett Award. The Hallett Award is given to a book published at least 10 years ago that has made a lasting contribution to the literature on representation and electoral systems. In Presidents, Parties, and Prime Ministers, Samuels and Shugart provide a theoretical framework for analyzing variation in the relationships among presidents, parties, and prime ministers across the world's democracies, revealing the important ways that the separation of powers alters party organization and behavior - thereby changing the nature of democratic representation and accountability.
