Editorial Reviews

Review

"What a year and what a story to be told. The authors have exceeded my highest expectations by capturing the emotional roller coaster, the ups and downs of the polls, and the polarized public mood. There is plenty here for the seasoned political veteran, the interested academic and journalist, and the general public."
--John Zogby, President/CEO, Zogby International

"This fine new collection does an especially good job in exploring the role of values in the 2004 campaign.  The essays are written in a way that students are bound to be interested, and faculty also will enjoy these thoughtful assessments."

--Clyde Wilcox, Department of Government, Georgetown University

 

 “American presidents govern the entire nation but they are chosen in fifty separate state contests, each with its own rules, issues and personalities. Winning the White House is one of the few books to capture the state-by-state and regional realities of presidential politics.  It is a book that should be read and pondered by scholars, journalists and citizens.”

--Benjamin Ginsberg, Bernstein Professor of Political Science, The Johns Hopkins University

 

"Winning the White House is an interesting and insightful volume on the policy issues and regional dynamics that brought President Bush a second term in 2004.  The authors provide a thorough and provocative treatment of the current state of national politics, and give us food for thought for future presidential elections.  This book deserves a wide readership and should find its way into many college classrooms.”

-- Irwin L. Morris, Associate Professor, University of Maryland at College Park

Format: Paperback
The regional approach is novel for these kinds of books. This well done book is more interesting and relevant than most election books. It is the best book on 2004.
