Summary

This second edition of Gender and Elections offers a systematic, lively, multifaceted account of the role of gender in the American electoral process through the 2008 elections. Timely yet enduring, the book strikes a balance between highlighting the most important recent developments for women as voters and candidates and providing a more long-term, in-depth analysis of the ways in which gender shapes the U.S. electoral process. Individual chapters demonstrate the importance of gender in understanding and interpreting presidential elections, voter participation and turnout, voting choices, congressional elections, the participation of African American women, the support of political parties and women's organizations, candidate communications with voters, and state elections. Without question, Gender and Elections, Second Edition, is the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the role of gender in American electoral politics. Book jacket.
