Every four years since 1996, William G. Mayer edits a book of essays on the presidential nomination process. The book consists of 8 chapters, all on various aspects of that process, including the invisible primary, the Iowa caucuses, media coverage, television advertising, campaign finance, voting behavior, and the historical origins of the process. The book has two major objectives: to present a broad overview of the presidential nomination process through a detailed examination of some of its most significant components; and to showcase some of the most interesting work now being done on the politics of presidential selection.

About the Author:

William G. Mayer is an associate professor of political science at Northeastern University in Boston. He lives in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Review:

Once again, William G. Mayer has assembled a collection of the top scholarship on the presidential selection process that will prove invaluable to neophytes and specialists, alike. This collection breaks new ground on the dynamics of the nomination contest, candidate fund-raising and televised advertising, as well as media coverage. Discussions of the Iowa caucuses and African Americans in the nomination process are especially timely for the 2008 cycle. The collection is valuable as a resource for following the 2008 contests and for understanding how the modern process has evolved both since 1968 and 1996. (Joseph A. Pika)

the work contains a rich resource of amassed survey data on nomination issues....A good, useful book for students of politics and for readers with a general interest in American elections. Summing Up: Recommended. (Choice)

In the drama it offers to political devotees, and the consequences it will likely impose on the entire nation, the 2008 presidential election is plainly history in the making. As a political journalist, I am enormously impressed by the roster of people William Mayer has assembled to ponder the hard questions posed by 2008, and by the answers in these pages. These are voices respected in dual arenas--well known in their discipline, and well known to political journalists like me who to turn to them for analytical perspective on the daily rush of news. (Harris, John F.)
