Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The 1990 victory of Democrat Ann Richards over Republican Clayton Williams in the Texas gubernatorial race followed a campaign in which both candidates made extensive use of negative advertising; in addition, Williams made numerous gaffes that alienated many voters, especially women. Academician Tolleson-Rinehart and Stanley, director of research and legal support in the office of the Texas attorney general, examine the impact of gender on this race. The book's strength lies in the authors' discussion of the historical and cultural contexts of the contest, although their examination of the actual campaign and election is somewhat cursory. The conceptual framework, terminology, and statistical analyses presented here will limit the book's appeal to general and lay readers. For political science and gender studies collections in academic libraries.

5 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Tammy Bellinger on June 28, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book covers a great topic that hasn't been addressed in published materials very much. But, it needs some re-writing to be more readable. The first chapter in particular is poorly done. Chapters 2-4 are better, and again 5 is poorly done. The authors attempt to explain the role of gender during the 1990 gubernatorial elections in Texas. At many times, they sound just as confused as the elections were that year. Their general conclusion is that Ann Richards won because Claytie lost! That is probably an accurate conclusion, but their material that attempts to show the role of gender rambles, and does not just get to the point. Please edit and re-publish!
