Sources on McGovern-Fraser Commission Reform?

I'm looking for secondary literature on the changes in the Democratic Party's delegate nomination process as a result of the Douglas-Fraser Commission's reform recommendations. The reforms are mentioned frequently, but I'm surprised that I cannot find works that address them more substantially and substantively (Bruce Miroff's book is the exception). Perhaps I'm missing something obvious. I'd be most grateful for any suggestions of literature, whether from historians or political scientists.

Announcing the new Resources tab

Greetings H-Net subscribers!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.

Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:
