Overview

Every two years, media coverage of American elections turns into a horse-race story about who's leading the polls and who said what when.

Updated with facts, figures, and analysis, this edition provides the next generation of voters with essential guidance about the past, present, and future of American elections.

"[A] very readable, engaging, and entertaining history of American elections and politics for young people. Highly recommended."—starred, Booklist
