Presidential Campaignsby Paul F. Nagel
Campaigning for the presidency demands strength and courage. Presidential nominees have to know how to play the game, moreover, whether they care for it or not. This enlightening and endlessly entertaining book unveils the whole history of American presidential elections--those clamorous showdowns that have so perplexed, pleased, amused, irked, and fascinated the American people from the very beginning.
