Summary

The election of 2000 marked the beginning of a period of partisanship and extremism previously unseen in American history. From the US Supreme Court's involvement in Bush v. Gore, to the extraordinary primary race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in 2008, the first four elections of the 21st century contained fascinating narratives with equally significant historical implications. Anthony J. Bennett guides us through the events of these four elections, showing how this era of partisanship has reshaped not only presidential nominations and elections, but the American presidency and politics itself.
