Editorial Reviews


. . . a thorough, cogent, and perceptive analysis that separates emerging myth from reality. (Anthony Corrado, Colby College)

Something genuinely new happened in the 1992 campaign. These authors get it. Most politicians and journalists don't. They'd better read this book so they can get it, too. (William Schneider, Political Analyst, CNN)

A lively and insightful analysis of the extraordinary political events of 1992. (A James Reichley, Senior Fellow; Georgetown University; author of The Life of the Parties)

. . . a perceptive, highly readable account. . . . [a] stimulating,d well-informed book. (Bruce Buchanan, The University of Texas at Austin)

. . . a superb, penetrating account . . . a well-crafted, carefully developed study by two thoughtful political analysts. (Everett C. Ladd, Executive Director at the Roper Center, University of Connecticut)

. . . a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on presidential elections. The authors' analysis of the 1992 contest is excellently done. Highly recommended. Thoroughly documented. (CHOICE)

Format: Paperback
This book does more than offer a funny, learned, and well paced analysis of the 1992 Presidential election, it does so while at the same time offering an interesting theory about political conflict in America. For Busch and Ceaser, the basic conflict which has defined american political life is one between "insiders and outsiders'. Clinton got elected in large measure because he was an "insider' who was able to sell himself as an "outsider' to a public distrustful of the inside washington establishment of which George Bush was so paradigmatic a representative. Perot , on the other hand , was far TOO outside, to put it mildly. In short, a book which I would reccomend to all students of American Politics, and one which might be useful in an introductory college course.
