In their fourth book on American elections, Ceaser and Busch explore the campaign, election, and aftermath of the 2004 election season. While the book focuses on the heated presidential campaign, it also includes analyses of the house and senate races. More than just a summary, Red Over Blue examines the theories behind the events and uses studies and data to explain why the election went the way it did.
James W. Ceaser is professor of politics at the University of Virginia. Andrew E. Busch is associate professor of government at Claremont McKenna College. Together, they have written The Perfect Tie: The True Story of the 2000 Election, Losing to Win: The 1996 Elections and American Politics, and Upside Down and Inside Out: The 1992 Elections and American Politics.
