PoliPointPress re-issuing Greg Mitchell’s “Campaign of the Century”

Leave a comment

As the first publication in a new series (“P3 Classics”) of re-issues of great books on politics that are out-of-print, PoliPointPress is publishing a reprinted edition of Greg Mitchell’s The Campaign of the Century: Upton Sinclair’s Race for Governor and the Birth of Media Politics. The book, originally published in 1992, recounts the landmark 1934 campaign for governor of California on a day-by-day basis, starting with Upton Sinclair’s nomination and ending with the general election. As the title of the book indicates, Mitchell’s thesis is that the campaign had implications beyond California, in the creation of mass media politics.

For more on the re-issue and the book, take a look at Peter Richardson’s blog post about it.
