The 2016 presidential campaign gave us an election that broke with many accepted practices and introduced new concepts to campaign communication. Providing a clear understanding of the strategic decisions made and tactical communication practices used in contemporary political campaigns, the updated eighth edition adds an exploration of the primaries, the conventions, and the debates of the tumultuous 2016 election. The update covers key issues including candidate surfacing, the changing role of advertising, social media, journalism and fake news, and issues of gender. With concepts like "fake news" and "alternative facts," the 2016 campaign brought students of political campaign communication into uncharted territory. This updated eighth edition of a much loved text provides an essential overview of the 2016 presidential campaign that no course should be without.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Political Campaign Communication is deservedly an institution, established as the seminal study of election campaigning and the role of strategic communication since its first edition. This updated eighth edition-which features examples from recent campaigns and explores the use of digital technologies-continues to position the book as the key manual for understanding U.S. elections. -- Darren G. Lilleker, Bournemouth University
Political Campaign Communication is an expert take on the many important roles that communication plays in political campaigns. Clearly organized and well written, the book draws on lively examples from the past and present to illuminate its subject matter. There is little doubt that the new eighth edition of this classic text will appeal to students and professors alike. -- Kevin M. Coe, University of Utah
The updated eighth edition of this book maintains its position as an outstanding and comprehensive examination of American political campaign communication, both in theory and practice. Because campaign procedures in other parts of the world are often inspired by campaign features initially elaborated in an American context, it will also be of great interest to international students and scholars. -- Lars W. Nord, Mid Sweden University
This book masterfully introduces and explains key concepts, terms, and contexts that help us understand campaign rhetoric and communication in the specific context of the U.S. political scene. Communication is at the core of every political campaign, and Trent, Friedenberg, and Denton make us smarter about how it works. Scholars of campaign rhetoric, media commentators, and general audiences all have something to learn from Political Campaign Communication. -- Paul Achter, University of Richmond
