Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With the nation on the verge of another round of national political campaigns, CQ Press has released the latest volume in its biennial series on elections and politics. Published every other year since 1988, this title provides a snapshot of issues and factors influencing elections. Like previous volumes in the series, this edition presents statistics from a wide range of sources. Topics covered include elections and political parties, campaign finance and political action committees, public opinion and voting, the media, foreign and military policy, social policy, and economic policy. Additional chapters are devoted to the three major branches of the federal government (executive, legislative, and judicial) and a historical and current view of Federalism. In each chapter, there is a brief narrative summary followed by tables, charts, and graphs presenting the statistical data. As with all CQ Press publications, the authors provide a nonpartisan perspective on each topic. One of the strengths of this work is that it brings together a wide range of source data. Information is compiled from the best sources inside and outside of the federal government, including the Census Bureau, Federal Election Commission, Pew Trust, Nielsen, the Brookings Institution, and Congressional Quarterly’s own researchers. The range of time coverage varies by topic and source. Official government election data often goes all the way back to the first national election, in 1789, whereas data from private sources may only cover the current decade. Unfortunately, many of the tables end in 2008, and some very current topics are missing, including the rise of the Tea Party and the impact of the current recession. Even with those shortcomings, this is another excellent resource for anyone interested in national elections and politics in the U.S. --David Tyckoson
