Now in its second edition, The Routledge Historical Atlas of Presidential Elections covers each race for the presidency with brisk, lively narratives up to the election of 2016.

Filled with more than 100 full-color maps and illustrations, this updated volume is an indispensable resource for learning about the suspense-filled races to gain America's highest office. Distinguished presidential historian Yanek Mieczkowski captures intriguing details about candidates, issues, and campaigns, allowing readers to experience the drama of every contest. The colorful maps that put state-by-state results at readers' fingertips show geographic voting trends during the country's history. The presidency is America's greatest political prize, and this book describes how candidates have won it-including changes in electoral strategies and campaign practices over the years. This text offers a treasure trove of historical information, such as:

  • The early tradition of the "mute" candidate
  • The period where just one effective political party existed nationwide
  • One race that witnessed an astounding 80 percent voter turnout
  • A popular-vote victory of 39.9 percent that triggered secession
  • The emergence of the "front-porch" campaign
  • A third-party candidate who got more votes than the incumbent president
  • The impact of radio, television, and the Internet on the election process

This book is essential reading for students of American history and the U.S. presidency.
