From the Publisher
Annotation The historic 2008 presidential campaign provided high drama and generated much work for the press, which had the challenge of covering a wide field of candidates early in the campaign, and then two tightly contested runoffs just prior to the conventions. And then there was the battle between the two nominees, Barack Obama and John McCain. Evan Thomas presents a thorough, well-crafted account based on the reporting in Newsweek magazine. Thomas provides incisive portraits of the major personalities, a discussion of the major issues, and campaigns, appearances, and debates. He also provides post-election analysis of why the American electorate voted the way it did--making the historic decision to elect Barack Obama President of the United Sates.
Editors Note Offers an insider's narrative on this exciting presidential election through a review of the important figures, key issues, secret meetings, and crucial turning points that shaped and changed the outcome of major events during the race.
