Editorial Reviews

"Sireau's work is a rare example of an informed study of political campaigning from the inside. Its mix of first-hand observation and intellectual insight will make fascinating reading for both scholars and practitioners in the field of political communication."--Aeron Davis, Senior Lecturer in Political Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK "Nick Sireaus case-study engages with central issues in the modern publicity process, in particular that complex interplay between political institutions, issue activism, the media and the public that campaigns now involve. His analysis and arguments are illuminating for our wider understanding of contemporary public culture."--Professor John Corner, University of Liverpool, UK
