Who Runs for the Legislature? (01 Edition)by Gary F. Moncrief
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the 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.
