From the ratification of the Constitution in 1788 to the election of 2000, this up-to-date atlas covers all of the US presidential races. A variety of colourful, clearly presented, maps, graphs and illustrations place state by state results at the reader's fingertips, and provide insights into the local and regional trends that played a decisive role in who was elected president and how. This book also illuminates major themes in electoral politics, ranging from the role of status, voter anxiety, and ethnic conflict to the influence of corporations and elites.
