Starred Review. Here's a useful book, by three academics, for all readers wishing to further understand the 2008 presidential campaign—and for those who think they already understand it! Although a Democrat was expected to win the presidency, the journey to that outcome was full of surprises; back stories, circumstances, strategies, and results are all described and objectively analyzed here. There is also a chapter on the congressional and state elections, and a conclusion—about the future. All readers will come away feeling as clearheaded as these writers, a tribute to their work.—Margaret Heilbrun (MH), Library Journal

)This is political science at its best. It is well-grounded in the scholarly literature fair and balanced, and will remain the authoritative account of the events and content of the election of 2008. A must read for any student of American elections.
