This ought should be a text book

by Yoyoma on Oct 30, 2008

I was a political science major years ago and this book reminded me of the reading assignments given to us from our professors. The observations are enlightening but the book is dry. If you are a political egghead you might like this book. While I am very curious about political science, I had an aversion to reading the book because it felt like I was back in college.


Eclipsed by 2006 election numbers

by Seajack on Aug 4, 2007

Authors had a great idea for a book on politics beyond the Reign of W, spending the past couple of years assiduously putting together a slew of statistics to back up their professional analysis of current American politics. Then Karl Rove's brilliant strategy imploded, and the electorate turned on the administration, pretty well across the board, though with some demographics more strongly than others. So ... it's tough to extrapolate the pre-implosion data (pre-2004) to 2008 and beyond. The book went to press after the 2006 elections, and the authors do mention the results in the Foreward. However, I'm deducting two stars: one because it reads like a college statistics thesis in large part, and another because the data is (to some extent, debateable how much) not relevant for the next political cycle.
