Larry J. Sabato is director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and author of numerous books including Feeding Frenzy: How Attack Journalism Has Transformed American Politics and Peepshow: Media and Politics in an Age of Scandal.


These case studies are rich in detail and comprehensive in scope. The book is an excellent introduction to the contemporary political scene. Highly recommended. CHOICE This trenchant analysis of George W. Bush at midterm time is the first to examine how an accidental president became politically potent enough to defy conventional wisdom and lead his party to unprecedented success in 2002. By raising the specter of a new midterm paradigm that will give political scientists considerable fodder for future research, Sabato does it again. Midterm Madness is an outstanding addition to the library of anyone interested in campaigns and elections. -- Karen O' Connor, American University This book provides a clear and compelling commentary on Election 2002 by a distinguished set of writers. Everything you wanted to know about the midterm election, but were afraid to ask. Must-reading for all who are polishing their crystal balls for 2004! -- Darrell M. West, Brown University
