'The Political Marketing Game by Jennifer Lees-Marshment is about as thorough an analysis of a discipline, regarded as much an art as it is a science, that one could ever hope for...Lees-Marshment combines 100 interviews (over 5 years of research, across 5 western liberal democracies) of heavy weight political marketing practitioners with her keen understanding of the wealth of existing academic literature on the subject. Undoubtedly, the highlights of the book are the musings of communication directors, political representatives, pollsters and strategists including (amongst many others) Alastair Campbell, Iain Duncan Smith and Philip Gould, on their various electoral battles...This is a hugely informative study on an important field that is changing and developing at an extraordinary rate.'

Progress magazine

'The Political Marketing Game: 'Drawing on insights gleaned from an extensive range of interviews, Lees-Marshment's monograph is packed full of fascinating reflections from practitioners...each chapter ends with a series of tables listing the dos and don'ts...packed full of practical advice, this book will be a bible for political operatives to be kept close at hand for frequent reference.'

Political Studies Review

'Lees-Marshment offers sagacious views on, inter alia, the importance of investing in detailed research and acting on the uncomfortable findings, building and maintaining a strong political organisation, providing vision and principle, and offering clear, simple and deliverable pledges...her book provides a wealth of insights into political marketing and merits a place on the bookshelves of political scientists as well as practitioners.'
