dc.description.abstractConsideration of the New Hampshire Sweepstakes within this paper will center upon the questions: What has been the history of sweepstakes within the United States? Why after a century and a half of disuse and discredit did New Hampshire consider the resurrection of this method of raising revenue? What was the course of the current legislation leading to its adoption in 1963? How, and with what factors held of primary importance, was the agency responsible for the mechanics of the operation established? Has the program run smoothly and successfully during its first year? Have any of the criticisms by the opponents of the sweeps been shown to be correct as of this date? Are any predictions of its future possible? By the conclusion of this work we hope to have reached some realistic evaluation of this historic program. Additionally, we shall endeavor to make some personal appraisals concerning its impact upon other state governments and the desirability of this impact, public acceptance of the measure, lobbyist techniques in this instance and in general, and, finally. the use and value of research of this nature in the field of political science.en_US
