In Dukakis: An American Odyssey ( LJ 4/15/88), Charles Kenney and Robert L. Turner identified the Massachusetts governor as a person who displayed steadiness of purpose, discipline, and determination in achieving his goals. In this book, journalists Black and Oliphant paint quite a different picture, going into great detail to explain where and how Dukakis's presidential campaign strategy went awry. Dukakis's numerous mistakes are fully outlined here, all of them ``colossal, stupendous, dramatic, intricate . . . .'' Dukakis, for example, often left himself open to attacks from the Bush camp, especially in the case of his espousal of prison furlough in the face of its glaringly bad example, William Horton. While this will not be the final analysis of the 1988 Democratic campaign, it is an auspicious first attempt. Highly recommended for most libraries.-- Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.
