Gaddie and Bullock provide coverage and analysis of key issues-from the emergence of candidates to the effect of previous political experience to financing to the influence of the election of women-in an often original and regularly enlightening fashion. Not only is this a book congressional scholars will want to have, but it can also serve as a research stimulus for students of congressional elections who are looking for new paths to explore. -- Bruce I. Oppenheimer, Vanderbilt University
The analysis is methodologically sound and, in places highly sophisticated, yet the conclusions are not beyond the grasp of an educated lay person. . . . Overall, this work is a genuine contribution to the literature on congressional elections. The book makes a powerful case for studying open seat races and lays the groundwork for future exploration in the field. It deserves a spot in the library of all students of Congress and elections. -- Stephen M. Nichols, California State University * American Political Science Review *
Gaddie and Bullock conduct an excellent and thought-provoking foray into this area that has been long overdue for such a focused exploration. Their analysis is sophisticated, but accessible, and should be on the reading list for all students of congressional elections. * American Review of Politics *
Elections to Open Seats in the U.S. House is a book that every student of congressional elections should have on his or her shelf. * Congress & the Presidency *
