This edited collection examines the role of identity in the historic presidential election of 2008. After a brief introductory essay that provides an overview of the election, an essay analyzes Sarah Palin's campaign as the Republican nominee for vice president. The Palin campaign is notable in that a woman ran against the typical image of feminism. A particularly interesting essay closely examines Democratic nominee Senator Barack Obama's use of apologia in his campaign. The collection considers both the primary and general election campaigns. An essay reviews Senator Hillary Clinton's campaign for the Democratic nomination. The Evangelical voter is the focus of another essay. Most of the essays use fairly simple quantitative analyses. Denton (Virginia Tech) provides a summary essay that critiques the importance of identity politics in contemporary political campaigns. The collection closes with a short epilogue that considers the role of liberals in the US academy. While the essays come from communication scholars, they include political science research in their framework that answers the research question at hand. Students of presidential campaigns as well as those readers interested in understanding the contours of the 2008 election will find this collection useful. Summing Up: Recommended.
