Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the analysis presented to be thorough, but quite dry. This is absolutely an excellent resource for anyone interested in campaign politics, demographic trends in the last two presidential elections, the primary system, etc. If you're like me and more interested in abstract ideas, you'll find the book a chore to work through. But this is no fault of the authors. This book is really designed for those looking for lots of facts about the elections, and in that respect, it is excellent.

Format: Paperback
Change and Continuity in the 2008 and 2010 Elections continues a series that Paul Abramson, John Aldrich, and David Rohde began with their study of the 1980 elections. These books have consistently presented the first major analysis of the presidential and congressional elections to use the American National Election Studies. Among the eight presidential elections they have analyzed, the 2008 contest was especially historic. Their interpretation of the election, as resulting mainly from negative evaluations of George W. Bush and the Republican Party, is not novel, but it is correct. And by using the best available survey data to study voting behavior, they provide the best evidence available to help understand the election. This edition also provides an analysis of the shifts in power that occurred with the 2010 election. This book is highly recommended for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of these elections.
