"Medvic has assembled an impressive collection of chapters in New Directions in Campaigns and Elections. The chapters, authored by established scholars, cover a broad range of topics, ranging from new media and voter mobilization to campaign finance and state politics. Most important, the authors provide their perspectives on the study of campaign and elections, in terms of future research questions, opportunities, and directions. Medvic’s up-to-date text is essential for courses on presidential elections, congressional elections, campaigns and voting behavior, and public opinion."

"The strength of New Directions in Campaigns and Elections is both the breadth of topics covered and the top-notch scholars that write the chapters. This edited volume is rich with details about the most current issues facing campaigns and the relevant aspects of our 21st century election process. By covering the numerous facets of campaigns and elections, Medvic and his colleagues ground the reader in both the critical theory and empirical knowledge necessary to make sense of such complex phenomena."
