About this book


“This set of highly engaging, well-researched essays on the 2018 midterms goes beyond surface and standard analysis of elections and delivers important insights on the structural and campaign dynamics that mattered. I strongly recommend this collection for scholars, the public and students alike.”

Amy Fried, Professor of Politics, The University of Maine, USA and author of Pathways to Polling: Crisis, Cooperation, and the Making of Public Opinion Professions (2012)

“This book’s insights and analysis at the district, state and national levels inform readers on our conventional understanding of U.S. politics as well the implications of 2018 for our future.”

Kevin Parsneau, Professor of Government, Minnesota State University, USA
