I can't imagine anyone heading into the campaign trenches without a copy of The Campaign Manager!
Daniel M. Shea, Colby College
A comprehensive guide to all aspects of modern campaigns, from strategy to understanding voter contact techniques, to fundraising, paid and earned media, to get-out-the-vote-drives.
James A. Thurber, American University
Practical, witty, and fact-packed. This is the bible of campaign management.
Les Aucoin, Former US Congressman from Oregon
Arguably the most comprehensive, insightful, and useful compendium of local campaign wisdom ever assembled.
Phil Keisling, Former Oregon Secretary of State
Thinking of running for local office? Stop, and buy this book. It will tell you how to win, or at least what you must do if you want to win. Just as important, it will tell you when you are wise not to run.
Mark Carl Rom, Georgetown University
Shaw presents an excellent how-to guide for the prospective campaigner. From strategic orientation to voter targeting to media, Shaw provides a step-by-step process to getting a campaign off the ground.
Chapman Rackaway, University of West Georgia
Shaw's book should be read by all persons interested in entering elective office at the local level. It is also an excellent supplementary text for a course on American political campaigns. One of its major strengths is the focus on local political campaigns, which are often overlooked when presidential and statewide elections are held. It is the definitive guide to campaigning at the local level.
Raymond Scheele, Ball State University
Quite simply the best organizational tool for anyone seeking political office or working on an issue-based campaign.
