Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first comprehensive book on state legislative candidates in almost 30 years. Based on extensive interviews with over 600 candidates--"traditional" and "non- traditional"--in 8 states, it is exciting and easy to read and not only reveals the inner-workings of the campaign process, but provides an in-depth look at what motivates "ordinary" people to seek office. Focuses on non-incumbants and features a series of in-depth "Candidate Profiles." Candidacy as Political Participation. The Context of Recruitment and Candidacy. The Agents of Recruitment. The Candidate and the Campaign. The Road Less Traveled: Women, Minorities and Third Party Candidates. Candidates and the Quality of Civil Life. For anyone interested in State Government, Legislative Politics, Elections, and Campaigns.
