Overview

Two of America's most perceptive political reporters join forces for an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the race for the White House in POLITICO's Playbook 2012, a series of four instant digital books on the 2012 presidential election. The first edition, The Right Fights Back, follows the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

The battle for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination promises to be one of the most hotly contested and closely fought in recent memory, as establishment Republicans, Tea Party favorites, and dark horse insurgents vie to take on President Obama in the November election. In The Right Fights Back, Mike Allen, chief White House correspondent for POLITICO, and Evan Thomas, the award-winning journalist and author of Robert F. Kennedy and The War Lovers, chronicle the dramatic events of this historic campaign as it unfolds.

With exclusive real-time reporting from the campaign trail, The Right Fights Back provides detail, color, and in-depth analysis that take readers beyond the hourly headlines and commentary. From the role of Super PACS and conservative interest groups to the clashes of personality and policy that will define the race to capture the GOP nomination, this is a history-as-it-happens account of the resurgent American right at the crossroads.

    Good, but short

    As a Poli-Sci major and political junkie, I really enjoyed the "book" and some of it's in-depth insights, although at 65 pages it's more like a pamphlet or brochure. For some reason I thought there would be a hyperlink at the end where the reader could go to DL updates as the primaries progress, but I guess not.

    Food for Political Junkies

    Awesome read. Lots of insider details reminiscent of Game Change from the 2008 campaign. Looking forward to the next edition.

    A compelling read for such a short book.

    The authors do a great job of presenting an unbiased look at the machinations and intrigue of the 2012 election. If you're in the least bit interested in the behind-the-scenes activity during an election,,,this is the book to read

    Insightful!

    This is a fun read for those closely following the race. There are no chapters, just a series of notes on different aspects of the campaigns, and more specifically the candidates. This is apparently the first in a series of ebooks that will highlight details of the campaigns that somehow didn't make Politico news stories. It is highly recommended for politics junkies.

    Highly recommended

    A must read for political junkies looking for their next fix. An interesting 'behind the scenes' look at the Republican candidates that confirms all the things you may have suspected and reveals surprises you would have never guessed.
