The third edition of Gender and Elections offers a systematic, lively, and multifaceted account of the role of gender in the electoral process through the 2012 elections. This timely yet enduring volume strikes a balance between highlighting the most important developments for women as voters and candidates in the 2012 elections and providing a more long-term, in-depth analysis of the ways that gender has helped shape the contours and outcomes of electoral politics in the United States. Individual chapters demonstrate the importance of gender in understanding and interpreting presidential elections, presidential and vice-presidential candidacies, voter participation and turnout, voting choices, congressional elections, the political involvement of Latinas, the participation of African American women, the support of political parties and women's organizations, candidate communications with voters, and state elections. Without question, Gender and Elections is the most comprehensive, reliable, and trustworthy resource on the role of gender in U.S. electoral politics.

Review:

"Gender and Elections, 3rd edition is a terrific book. It presents the latest analysis of the gendered aspects of American elections with a specific focus on the experiences of women candidates. Covering a range of essential topics, the volume presents the perspectives of a slate of top scholars in a timely and accessible form. Acknowledging the diversity between and among women, this book gives us a sense of women's political history and their future opportunities."
Kathleen Dolan, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

"Thoroughly updated, the new edition of Carroll and Fox's book contains an accessible combination of the latest political science theorizing on women's position on the American political scene and the very latest data looking at women's participation as voters, candidates, and even as possible presidents."
Richard Matland, Helen Houlahan Rigali Chair in Political Science, Loyola University Chicago

"American politics cannot be understood without attention to the role of gender in electoral dynamics. Women's influence in U.S. elections continues to expand - as voters, candidates, and officeholders. Though still facing obstacles in their path to electoral success, women are transforming American politics, even in their pursuit of the elusive office of the presidency. This volume captures the evolving role of gender through detailed analysis of the 2012 election in relation to previous elections. Timely analysis of the impact of gender, in combination with race, ethnicity, and generation, offers special insights into newly emergent electoral coalitions likely to persist in the midst of demographic change."
Christine Marie Sierra, University of New Mexico
