Editorial Reviews

Review

“The surest, shrewdest interpretation of the key election of 1948.” --David R. Mayhew, author of Partisan Balance: Why Political Parties Don’t Kill the U.S. Constitutional System

“The common wisdom about the election of 1948 is that it ranks as one of the classic surprises of electoral politics. By treating it as the exact opposite, Busch both introduces the paradox of 1948 and solves it.” --Byron E. Shafer, author of The Two Majorities and the Puzzle of Modern American Politics.

“Busch’s rich and nicely paced narrative may be the best of the many books on this subject.” --Alonzo L. Hamby, author of Man of the People: A Life of Harry S. Truman

Andrew E. Busch is Crown Professor of Government and George R. Roberts Fellow at Claremont McKenna College. His dozen books include Reagan’s Victory: The Presidential Election of 1980 and the Rise of the Right (also from Kansas), and most recently Epic Journey: The 2008 Elections and American Politics.

Andrew Busch combines the latest scholarship with a lucid writing style. The book was a pleasure to read, and I would recommend this to all interested in this quintessential election.
