    Paid, earned, and social media are all crucial elements of modern electioneering, yet there is a scarcity of supplementary texts for campaigns and election courses that cover all types of media.

    Seven Stories Press 2016; US$ 14.99

    Hillary Clinton is running for the presidency with a message of hope and change.
