Germond and Witcover, respected Washington insider journalists, have produced another in their series of books on Presidential elections which has become, in many ways, the liberal equivalent of Theodore H. White's Making of the President series. With a title reminiscent of Marathon ( LJ 7/77), Blue Smoke and Mirrors ( LJ 9/1/81), and Wake Us When It's Over ( LJ 7/85), they provide a well-researched and beautifully crafted account of the 1988 Presidential campaign. They track the rise of Michael Dukakis over the crowd of "flavor of the month" Democratic candidates and, in the discussion of the major events and issues of the campaign, provide rather ominous commentary on the changing role of consultants, dictators of schedules, and print and electronic journalists. As one would expect from these authors, it's all here.- Frank Kessler, Missouri Western State Coll., St. Joseph
