Pennsylvania Elections: Statewide Contests from 1950-2004
Pennsylvania Elections: Statewide Contests, 1950-2004 provides a systematic and thorough analysis of elections in Pennsylvania. The work focuses on voting trends across the state, analyzes the political geography of the state, and develops a narrative of the people and places that have shaped these elections. The book discusses 93 political campaigns and elections in the state and assembles the voting statistics of all 67 counties in the Commonwealth. This is the first time this information has been collected in a single, published volume. Along with this data is a discussion of the candidates and issues that have shaped Pennsylvania for more than a half-century. By combining quantitative political science, political history, and political geography, this book will appeal to those interested in the current shape of Pennsylvania's politics and will serve as a resource for future scholars.
