Since its first edition in 1982, Change and Continuity has been known for offering the best analysis and explanation of voting behavior in recent elections and setting those results in the context of larger trends and patterns in elections studies. Year after year, the top-notch author team of Paul R. Abramson, John H. Aldrich, Brad T. Gomez, and David W. Rohde meticulously and accessibly explains and displays the National Election Studies data and analyzes its impact while making use of the most recent scholarship. This edition covers the 2012 presidential and congressional elections and includes an all-new chapter on the 2014 mid-term election. It examines the social forces, party loyalties, and prominent issues that affected voting behavior, and offers conclusions about what the results mean for the future of American politics.

Review:

"A new edition of Change and Continuity is like manna from heaven for students of American national elections. The latest in the series skillfully places the 2012 election in historical context while providing an intelligent and judicious review of scholarly debates about participation, partisanship, and issue voting. The new analysis of the dramatic 2014 midterms and their implications for the future is especially helpful. A gem for teaching."--Jack Citrin

"After each election, I look forward to the new edition of Change and Continuity. I know that the new edition will put the current election in the appropriate context. I know that my students will have a greater appreciation of the factors that underlie electoral behavior. Change and Continuity is both intellectually rigorous and accessible. I can't imagine teaching the elections class without using this book."--Brad Lockerbie

"I use Change and Continuity in my classes because students read it. It is accessible, current, and informative. The chapters provide a value-added use in the classroom because it is not journalistic. Rather the chapters analyze current subjects through the lens of political science, providing the intellectual framework that will help readers understand the politics that they are seeing on TV or reading about in newspapers."--Wayne Steger

"Once again, Paul Abramson and his team have provided us with a lucid and detailed account of the most recent national elections. Placing this account within the broader conceptual context of U.S. voting behavior, they provide the reader with a thorough, general background in U.S. election studies valuable for use in several different courses. Most importantly for me, this text, as always, lays out a methodological blueprint for those students wishing to understand how we go about studying voting behavior and those who wish to analyze election data themselves."--Peter Galderisi

"No course on campaigns, elections, or voting is complete without the recent installment in the Change and Continuity series. The latest update demystifies the complexities of the important 2012 elections and the pivotal 2014 midterms in a penetrating and comprehensive fashion and situates the cycle in historical context masterfully. If there is only one book students interested in national elections read, it should be this one."--Costas Panagopoulos
