Overview

The unequivocal 2006 election results suggest we have entered a new period in American politics. When America’s votes were tallied this past November, Democrats had won Election Day majorities in both the Senate and the House for the first time since 1992. The House Democrats’ margin of victory, furthermore, was very similar to the House Republicans’ popular vote margin in 1994—a harbinger, perhaps, of a new political era.
In the wake of such an eventful election, it’s no surprise that pundits on both sides of the fence are clamoring for the 2008 edition of The Almanac of American Politics—the gold standard for anyone who wants to understand the American political landscape. Once again, renowned journalists Michael Barone and Richard E. Cohen present the ultimate reference guide for everyone involved, invested, or interested in American politics. As in previous editions, the 2008 Almanac includes colorful, fascinating profiles of every member of Congress and every governor. It also includes in-depth and up-to-date political profiles of all fifty states and 435 House districts—covering everything from economics to history to, of course, politics.
Specific to this latest edition of the nation’s leading political resource is coverage of all special elections in the 109th Congress and redistricting changes in Georgia and Texas. Barone and Cohen also provide a comprehensive look at the early maneuvering and likely battlegrounds of the 2008 presidential campaign.
Complete with maps, census data, and indispensable information on topics ranging from campaign expenditures to voting records to interest group ratings, this latest edition of the Almanac of American Politics presents everything you need to know about current American politics, related in snappy prose and framed by cogent analysis.

Editorial Reviews

Politico.com - Jonathan Martin
 “The indispensable resource for anybody who takes campaigns and elections seriously. Published since 1971, it offers richly detailed analysis on both national and state politics. Broken down by state and congressional district, it offers not just background on a given member or senator’s voting record, but expansive insight on the history, culture and demographics that shape a region’s voting patterns. It was founded by Michael Barone and is now produced by a trio that collectively know more about politics than anybody else in the hemisphere. . . . Whether you’re on the beach or at the lake, prop up your feet and dive into a random state or district. You’ll come away with an invaluable political education.”
Washington Post - Al Kamen
“Filled with enough facts to satisfy most any political junkie.”
washingtonpost.com - Chris Cillizza
 “The one book that EVERY political junkie should want under the tree this year. The Almanac of American Politics is—simply put—the book The Fix would bring with him if he was stranded on a desert island. Not only does it have detailed information about each member of Congress and his or her district, it’s filled with the sort of quirky facts and minutiae that make politics so great. . . . What else can we say? Go. Buy. This. Book.”
weeklystandard.com - Matthew Continetti
“Fascinating.”
realclearpolitics.com - Reid Wilson
“The Bible for political junkies. . . . The Almanac also sheds some light on the more fun side of Congress. . . . Don’t forget that Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich is the only member of Congress to list all the bowling allies in his district on his Congressional Web site.”
