HISTORIA: Ett genomgående problem med många politiska biografier och historiska översiktsverk är den skissartade behandlingen som valrörelserna ofta får.

Men för alla med intresse av just valkampanjer finns det nu hopp. Förlaget University Press of Kansas har en mycket intressant bokserie om amerikanska valkampanjer som kan rekommenderas.

Serien American Presidential Elections har hitintills betat av åtta valkampanjer från Andrew Jacksons seger 1828 till Ronald Reagans valseger över Jimmy Carter 1980.
