Editorial Reviews

?This volume is a useful popular summary of election campaigning over the course of American history and might appropriately be ordered by high school and public libraries. . . . . Dinkin provides a descriptive account of election contests, divided into chronological chapters. He writes of the colonial period, the first and second party systems, the golden age of parties' (1854-1888), the merchandising' era (1892-1948), and the contemporary mass media age. Most of the chapters follow the same format, successively describing campaign innovations, the use of print and other media, campaign organization, finance, and party coalitions. Each chapter ends with brief accounts of each presidential election in the particular era. . . . On his own terms, Dinkin furthers these vital goals of public education.?-Political Science Quarterly
