More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Compiled by noted political analyst Cook (Race for the Presidency: Winning the 2008 Nomination), the latest edition of this core reference work that's been published since 1952 follows in the tradition of its predecessors as an invaluable statistical compilation of U.S. election returns at all levels of government. Organized alphabetically by state and with data drawn from official election authorities, the painstakingly researched information contained in this volume makes it an oft-consulted, authoritative, one-stop source for election information that will be well used. The introduction sets forth the book's methodology and expounds upon the statistics and their significance. It is followed by tables indicating overall voter turnout and the number of total votes cast broken down by elective office. A map of the state's congressional districts precedes the individual state tabulations, which include postwar voting figures for the president, governor, senators, and members of House of Representatives, as well as results of the 2010 general and primary elections. A separate section is devoted to special elections, post-election changes, and party switches from 2009 to 2010. VERDICT Profoundly rich in detail, this distinctive compendium synthesizes disparate electoral data sources, and this makes it not only a great resource for students and scholars of political science and U.S. electoral history, but also a useful reference for lay readers. Although this information is available elsewhere, finding it would be a time-consuming and tedious process. Essential for public, academic, and specialized libraries.—David Ettinger, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, DC
