Overview

Cracked But Not Shattered: Hillary Rodham Clinton's Unsuccessful Campaign for the Presidency thoroughly analyzes Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination with an eye to identifying what went wrong_why, as the frontrunner, she ended up not breaking 'the glass ceiling.' The volume's contributors examine multiple issues in attempt to answer this question, from usual campaign communication topics such as Clinton's rhetoric, debate performance, and advertising to the ways in which she was treated by the media. Although her communication was flawed and the media coverage of her did reflect biases, these essays demonstrate how Clinton's campaign was in trouble from the start because of her gender, status as a former First Lady, and being half of a political couple. Cracked But Not Shattered provides keen insight into the historic 2008 democratic primaries that will particularly intrigue scholars and students of political communications.

Editorial Reviews

Rhetoric and Public Affairs
The edited collection...has clear pedagogical value in its summary of issues that affected the Clinton campaign.
John C. Tedesco
Cracked But Not Shattered is an essential read for scholars, campaign consultants, and political junkies interested in learning more about Hillary Rodham Clinton's historic campaign for the 2008 Democratic party presidential nomination. In this volume, Professor Sheckels assembles leading scholars in the fields of communication, political science, and gender studies whose contributions illuminate the context for Senator Clinton's campaign, her communication and rhetorical strategies, and media coverage of her landmark campaign. Descriptions and scrutiny of Clinton, her campaign, and the media offer insightful and valuable analyses for scholars, practitioners, and future women candidates alike.
Trevor Parry-Giles
Cracked But Not Shattered offers a series of fascinating and compelling insights about Clinton's historic campaign in 2008. Sensitive to issues of gender and bias, the essays that Sheckels has assembled teach and tell much about Clinton's efforts, revealing why she was both unsuccessful at securing election and successful at paving the way for the female political leaders of the future. This book paves the way for what will surely be many investigations of Hillary Rodham Clinton and her powerful communicative impact on the 2008 election, American politics in general, and the nation as a whole.
