Description

Using witty anecdotes and clear explanations, acclaimed writer Susan E. Goodman takes readers from the birth of democracy to the Electoral College; from front porch campaigning to hanging chads. It's all here, spiced up with Elwood Smith's witty illustrations, hilarious sidebars, photographs, and solid back matter. It's a landslide victory: "See How They Run "stands above the rest as the most accessible, informative, and enjoyable election book on the market.
