9780195399561: The Obama Victory: How Media, Money, and Message Shaped the 2008 Election

Barack Obama's stunning victory in the 2008 presidential election will go down as one of the more pivotal in American history. Given America's legacy of racism, how could a relatively untested first-term senator with an African father defeat some of the giants of American politics?

In The Obama Victory, Kate Kenski, Bruce Hardy, and Kathleen Hall Jamieson draw upon the best voter data available, The National Annenberg Election Survey, as well as interviews with key advisors to each campaign, to illuminate how media, money, and messages shaped the 2008 election. They explain how both sides worked the media to reinforce or combat images of McCain as too old and Obama as not ready; how Obama used a very effective rough-and-tumble radio and cable campaign that was largely unnoticed by the mainstream media; how the Vice Presidential nominees impacted the campaign; how McCain's age and Obama's race affected the final vote, and much more.

Briskly written and filled with surprising insights, The Obama Victory goes beyond opinion to offer the most authoritative account available of precisely how and why Obama won the presidency.

Review:


"The Obama Victory: How Media, Money and Message Shaped the 2008 Election is smart, groundbreaking and full of surprises. Despite all that's been written about the 2008 campaign, Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Bruce Hardy and Kate Kenski have produced fresh, conclusive evidence of how rhetoric, themes, and unprecedented campaign spending--plus the Palin factor--explain the historic outcome. Sharply written and brilliantly documented, this is the book for anyone interested in politics."--Andrea Mitchell, NBC News


"This book aims for an audience that includes, but is much wider than, the academic reader. It is much more a "fun read" than most scholarly books, in part because it incorporates the perspectives of campaign professionals along with anecdotes from the campaign trail. Some of these anecdotes will be familiar to readers, but many will be new and fascinating to any political junkie...Anyone who wants a better understanding of the outcome of the historic 2008 presidential race should read this book."--Political Communication


"A scrupulous and revealing analysis of the 2008 presidential election campaigns...This volume is not for the politically faint of heart, but The Obama Victory likely will be viewed in the future as the go-to source for a comprehensive perspective on the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States...The rigorous dependence on data is impressive. Overall, The Obama Victory is a lively and enlightening perspective on the 2008 election."--International Journal of Communication


"Excellent and comprehensive...the book offers a data-rich and extremely well-written account of the 2008 election. Indeed, it is hard to imagine a book that is more comprehensive in scope...Reading the book is almost like reliving the campaign month-by-month."--Journal of Mass Communication Education


"This book provides critical documentation about the historic 2008 campaign. Summing Up: Highly recommended."--CHOICE


"Fifty years from now scholars studying how Barack Obama overcame the odds of winning the 2008 election may turn to this impeccably researched book with its detailed regressions of the impact of various factors on voter decisions. They will find a wealth of data, charts, and graphs; meticulous explanations of methodology; and carefully drawn conclusions."--Communication Research Trends


"The most comprehensive book on the topic to date...Kenski, Hardy, and Jamieson have done more than simply document one campaign. They provide a model for how presidential campaigns should be studied by communication scholars."--Southern Communication Journal


"The best analysis of a presidential election in 60 years. Jamieson and her colleagues have set a new standard for analyzing campaign effects on voting and mobilization. A game changer for scholars, pundits and strategists."--Samuel Popkin, Professor of Political Science, University of California-San Diego


"The rich data and analysis in this book provide the fullest account to date not only of campaign and media effects in one of the most exciting elections in American history but of how to think about these effects into the decades ahead."--Robert Shapiro, co-author of Politicians Don't Pander


"This book could transform the way we understand presidential campaigns. The Obama Victory...could force a major shift in the financing of campaign coverage."--Thomas B. Edsall, The New Republic

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Barack Obama s stunning victory in the 2008 presidential election will go down as one of the more pivotal in American history. Given America s legacy of racism, how could a relatively untested first-term senator with an African father defeat some of the giants of American politics? In The Obama Victory, Kate Kenski, Bruce Hardy, and Kathleen Hall Jamieson draw upon the best voter data available, The National Annenberg Election Survey, as well as interviews with key advisors to each campaign, to illuminate how media, money, and messages shaped the 2008 election. In a crisp, incisive narrative, the authors identify the candidates major themes-Maverick versus Mc-Same; Change versus Tax and Spend Liberal, etc.-and then apply them to the five main periods of the campaign: the early summer; the period from the vice presidential nominations through the conventions; the financial meltdown from mid-September to mid-October; the two weeks after the final debate; and the final week. Throughout, they explain how both sides worked the media to reinforce or combat images of McCain as too old and Obama as not ready; how Obama used a very effective rough-and-tumble radio and cable campaign that was largely unnoticed by the mainstream media; how the Vice Presidential nominees impacted the campaign; how McCain s age and Obama s race affected the final vote, and much more. Analyzing each nominee s broadcast, cable, and radio spending, the authors conclude that Obama s media campaign was more savvy than McCain s, and that early voting and the complete collapse of campaign finance reform will change elections for years to come. Briskly written and filled with surprising insights, The Obama Victory goes beyond opinion to offer the most authoritative account available of precisely how and why Obama won the presidency.
