“The strength is the authors’ ability to integrate political science research into readable essays that are accessible to undergraduates. Moreover, the articles—and the book—are brief, which is a virtue in an undergraduate class, and all the essays are quite good. I have assigned this book every year in my course on the presidency, and with good reason—it is consistently the best one available on this topic.”
“Past editions of Mike Nelson’s elections series have been excellent in the immediate aftermath of the presidential election. They effectively capture the events of the campaigns and the circumstances leading up to the campaigns.”
