- Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 65.00
In the coming presidential primaries, no state is as important in setting the stage - or affecting the odds - as New Hampshire. This small, mountainous, proudly distinctive state holds the first primary and the results, both real and in comparison to expectations, can greatly influence the competition for the highest office in the land. Candidates... more...
- Algora Publishing 2007; US$ 33.95
The author, who cites decades of insider knowledge at the KGB and the CIA, says he originally compiled this book upon a request from Washington D.C.
