Nelson Book Review-Claremont Fall 2013


"Post-election books can offer riveting accounts of what happened, why, and what it all means..."

"Post-reelection books have a harder row to hoe..."

Begins Mike Nelson′s review of five post-reelection books in the Claremont Review of Books, Fall 2013 issue. Of the five, two stood out in Nelson′s opion - After Hope and Change: The 2012 Elections and American Politics, by James W. Ceaser, Andrew E. Busch, and John J. Pitney, Jr. as being "the best book about the 2012 election but" The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election, by John Sides and Lynn Vavreck tells "the single most illuminating story" from the election.
