Overview

In this reference designed for scholastic reference (which should also be used by media fact-checkers on those busy election nights, contributors to these 27 chapters describe how political campaigns work in the US, how they are financed, who gets to vote and when, what campaign staffers do to influence voters and wrangle candidates, and how specific types of campaigns differ from one another in execution and intent. Topics include laws and regulations about campaigns, the players and parties involved, polling and research, preparing for debates, getting out the (hopefully sympathetic) vote, and the probable future of current efforts toward campaign reform. Each article includes its own references, just in case that election night turns out to be not quite as busy as previously thought. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
