Biography of Political Campaigns Nov 9, 2004
This is a very detailed and quite fascinating "biography" and history of numerous political campaign stories as told by the hired guns (political consultants, campaign managers, etc). Rarely do we hear the behind the scenes story regarding a certain strategy utilized by a specific candidate, but this book divulges just that and much more!
A fascinating read for those who enjoy studying the political campaigning processes and history! One would do well to read this book and to learn from the strategies that worked and didn't work over the years. This book covers a wide array of domains in the political campaigning process - ranging from the financial aspects of running for office ("money is the mother's milk of politics" may hold true, but stories here also defy this very notion), the impact of television and media in deciding the fate of certain candidates, how dirty tricks either worked or backfired, how candidates recoup from a setback they've created themselves, and so on.
This book holds many treasured stories of the politicians we so revered (or didn't!) and their hearts, minds and souls in action. A treasure for those who have a passion for political campaigns.
