RUNNING FOR JUDGE: THE RISING POLITICAL, FINANCIAL, AND LEGAL STAKES OF JUDICIAL ELECTIONS examines contentious elections over the last quarter century and ties together the current state of the judicial elections literature with important new evidence on topics ranging from a history of elections processes to the importance of campaign financing and partisan influences. RUNNING FOR JUDGE isn't just for those considering running: it's for any interested in judicial process and law at all levels, from college to general-interest collections.
