Editorial Reviews

Review

A new edition of Change and Continuity in American Elections is always welcome for anyone teaching a course in American Voting Behavior. This new edition is an especially valuable resource given the historic quality of the 2008 election. As usual, there is wisdom in how the authors locate this election in historical context, taking into account both individual level change and the impact of major social and economic events. It is a no-brainer for me to use this text again. --- Jack Citrin, University of California, Berkley

When I have taught voting and elections, or related courses, in the past I have routinely used the Change and Continuity books by Abramson, Aldrich, and Rohde. The textbook successfully blends theoretical discussion of political behavior with accessible, compelling narratives of recent presidential and congressional campaigns, and current findings from the venerable American National Election Studies series, helping students understand the ways in which political scientists study elections and voting. Perhaps most importantly, the authors also place recent elections in a rich historical context, illustrating the key trends in the public mood, party allegiances, and voting patterns over time. --- Chris Lawrence, Texas A&M International University

I have used the Change and Continuity books for many years and have always found them ideal for my elections and voting behavior course. They have consistently provided the best set of findings from the most recent National Election Study. Furthermore, they have proved doubly valuable because they astutely place these findings in historical perspective. - --Martin P. Wattenberg, University of California, Irvine

Format: Paperback
Change and Continuity in the 2008 Elections continues a series that Paul Abramson, John Aldrich, and David Rohde began with their study of the 1980 elections. These books have consistently presented the first major analysis of the presidential and congressional elections to use the American National Election Studies. Among the eight presidential elections they have analyzed, the 2008 contest was especially historic. Their interpretation of the election, as resulting mainly from negative evaluations of George W. Bush and the Republican Party, is not novel, but it is correct. And by using the best available survey data to study voting behavior, they provide the best evidence available to help understand the election.
