Review:

Dukakis recounts his triumphs and travails as a White House hopeful 24 years ago in an essay for a new book, The Making of the Presidential Candidates 2012. (CNN)

This book is essential reading regarding the 2012 presidential election. The authors address vital questions of systemic importance regarding presidential selection, employing consistently sound arguments and evidence along the way. College classes on American parties, elections and the presidency will find this highly useful. (Steven E. Schier, Carleton College)

Mayer and Bernstein have assembled an impressive group of scholars for a relevant and timely examination of the presidential candidate selection process. A fine addition to courses on parties and elections and the American presidency. (Mark D. Brewer, University of Maine)
