About the Authors
After Hope and Change is another in a series of books on American elections by Ceaser and Busch going back to 1992. Pitney joins them here. . . .The book’s reporting is very good, and it refreshes the memories of interested readers. However, After Hope and Change is better journalism than it is political science. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections.
