Review:


Praise for the previous edition:
"[A]n essential component of any class which focuses on American women and politics...[It] provides an excellent overview of the current state of research in the political science subfield of women as candidates and officeholders." --American Political Science Review


"Women and Elective Office provides an accessible overview of cutting-edge research on women candidates and officeholders through informative essays written by leading scholars in the field of women and politics. This volume is an indispensable resource for scholars, students, and activists wishing to stay up-to-date with scholarship and developments related to women in elective office at all levels of government in the United States." --Susan J. Carroll, Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University


"Top-notch research made accessible. Impressive in its breadth and depth, a must-have for scholars, students, and anyone interested in campaigns. Everything you need to know about women and elections." --Barbara Palmer, Associate Professor and Executive Director of the Center for Women and Politics of Ohio


"Women and Elective Office balances breadth and depth in its subject matter, sophistication and accessibility in its analysis. It is an outstanding edited collection, sure to stimulate debate in the classroom and on the printed page." --MaryAnne Borrelli, Professor of Government, Connecticut College


"Thomas and Wilcox do it even better in this new, up to date analysis of key issues in the study of women and politics. Bringing us the latest work by top scholars, these chapters are feasts of information and analysis. Beginning with issues of political ambition, women's contributions at all levels of involvement whether as candidates, elected or appointed officials, and chapters tackling several issues surrounding Hillary Rodham Clinton's past and future role in politics, this book is a must on any women and politics reading list for students, scholars, and activists." --Karen O'Connor, Jonathan N. Helfat Distinguished Professor of Political Science Department of Government, American University
