"Views on the "rules of the game" as seen by political wives are assembled here by one who personally "experienced the brutal world of politics." The author, who participated in her husband's failed gubernatorial contest in Colorado in 1986 poignantly underscores the demands made on wives and families during campaigns that are bruising both emotionally and physically. Schuck's diary entries note minglings with the Bushes, Quayles, et al., juxtaposed with her wry comments about the role of spouses whose husbands prove not to be the voters' choice. Among the political wives interviewed are the first ladies of the Zuni and Navajo nations, Native American women who are shown to define their world differently from other political wives.
