MEDIA REVIEWS

'Interest in political campaigns and the role of the media has increased dramatically over the last few years. Political Communication in Direct Democratic Campaigns offers an impressively broad study of the interactions among politicians, the media and citizens. Based on a comprehensive data collection on three direct democratic campaigns in Switzerland, the contributors to this volume offer fascinating new insights on how media and politicians interact and how this interaction affects and is affected by citizens. Given the innovative and comprehensive design of the data collection this book will influence future work on political communcation.'
