What would happen if local media provided information that elected representatives did not control that focused on political issues? This is the question that Stephanie Greco Larson asks and answers in Creating Consent of the Governed. Larson explores the role of the news media in contemporary American politics, specifically, the effect of the media on voters’ evaluations of elected representatives. Larson also asks whether the press or the public is responsible for society’s present inattention to issues.

Larson’s book is a case study of the way constituents reacted to local media coverage of Democrat Bill Nelson, representative of a congressional district in east-central Florida. The book examines the relationship between Nelson, his local press, and his constituents in order to understand the media’s role in representation. Having conducted what she terms a social experiment, Larson presents the results of a panel survey of voters that measured what voters knew about Nelson and how supportive they were of him. She highlights a number of factors of growing importance in the field of political communication. For instance, How do the media affect audience perceptions? What information will change voters’ attitudes? How does personality affect the popularity of a representative? Does good or bad news have a greater effect on voters?

Larson concludes that the media can educate voters, but because voters often do not use the information to evaluate their legislators, the media do not facilitate issue representation.

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
