Presidential Campaigns, an enlightening and endlessly entertaining history of American presidential elections, brings each campaign, from Washington to Reagan, vividly to life. Boller chronicles the frenzy and frolic spawned by campaigns--the songs, slogans, rallies, leaflets, parades, and hyperbolic oratory--and also gives an account of the serious side of elections--the great public debates on race relations, economic policy and the candidates' stands on the vital issues of the day.
Above all, Boller makes clear that, despite their shortcomings, presidential campaigns are an inseparable part of democratic politics in the United States. These quadrennial showdowns have alternately perplexed, pleased and fascinated the American people, teaching us much about the character of our nation.

"For anyone seeking a lively resource book on America's quadrennial spectacle, Presidential Campaign is happily present."--The Washington Post


"An excellent handbook for the campaign junkie."--The Wall Street Journal


"[Boller] has a good eye for the offbeat and the ludicrous, and he spins the anecdotes together with the skill of the old-fashioned Yankee yarn master."--The New York Times Book Review
