About the book:

From the early jockeying and the first candidate announcements to the final tally on Election Day, choosing the president is an exciting, sometimes bewildering, and ever evolving process that dominates American politics for up to two years. CHOOSING THE PRESIDENT is a thorough yet accessible and completely nonpartisan look at the players and events, explaining every important landmark on the road to the White House including:
publicly visible events such as primaries, caucuses, and conventions
the strategies that guide fund-raising, campaigning, and spin doctoring
institutions that include the national parties, governmental oversight committees, and public-policy organizations
voting rights and voter behavior
the role of the media and the effects of polls and reporting
the actual laws that govern how we choose the president-from the Constitution to the
latest campaign-finance rules

While casting a vote is every citizen's right, casting an informed vote is every citizen's responsibility. This completely up-to-date and fully revised guide will enable every citizen to cast that informed vote.
