APRIL 2020 | Field Notes
Politics may, as Karl Marx suggested, be an epiphenomenon resting on the economic foundation of society, but still have interesting things to tell us.

This was the work not just of party officials, who made no secret of their intention to control the nomination, but also of the voters, who in most places stuck with the old political machinery.
