Synopsis
Do we get the best presidential candidates to run and elect the presidents we deserve as a nation? If not, why not? Could it have something to do with the quality of campaigns in American politics today? Noted presidential scholar Bruce Buchanan puts the 1996 presidential election campaign in context with the campaigns of 1988 and 1992, making the case that 'good' campaigns especially those with issue-oriented media coverage and positive campaign advertisements do make a difference in the quality and quantity of citizen participation, policy input and output, and overall good governance. Perfect for college courses on campaigns and elections and on the presidency, this book looks ahead to future election campaigns with a hope for creating a nation of 'citizen owners and lovers' of the political process, not to mention candidates and media coverage worthy of citizen involvement and attention.

Buchanan has cast a probing eye on democratic theory and practice to explain why contemporary American political campaigns have become so repellent. This is an extremely sophisticated analysis.--Paul Taylor, Free TV for Straight Talk Coalition
