Paul Quirk, Professor and Phil Lind Chair in US Politics and Representation, is one of many notable scholars who have contributed to a new book, The Elections of 2016, edited by Michael Nelson. This volume was published only five months after the US Presidential election, bringing much needed analysis and insight.

From the Publisher: “Bringing together a host of distinguished scholars, Michael Nelson’s The Elections of 2016 reliably delivers a nuanced analysis of yet another momentous cycle of political contests. No other single volume can expose your students to the depth of analysis and expertise in this title. Whether discussing particular races or taking a broader look at the national trends, these contributors captivate students with engaging stories and political drama, while weaving in important scholarship and expert analysis. Available mere months after the election, each chapter, written specifically for this volume, offers readers historical perspective as well as a look forward at the implications for the American political system.” – Sage Publishing
