KIRKUS REVIEW

A casual, chatty and basically sound guide to getting yourself elected and re-elected a sufficient number of times to eventually qualify for statesman's status. Using some of the findings of history, political science and sociology, the book demonstrates campaign financing, staffing problems, mediation, and planning campaign strategy. One of the trenchant sections of the book gives an off and running account of the lobby struggle over the disposition of the Medicare proposal. In synthesizing the theory of politics with illustrative examples of that theory at work in the hustings, the book should be around long after November 8th, 1968.
