An unprecedented look back at a century of presidential races from the photo archives of The New York Times. Over the course of the century The New York Times has reported American presidential campaigns and how they have evolved-from William McKinley's historic "front porch" campaign to the media and money-powered campaigns of today. Here, The Times has delved into its impressive archives to shape a unique picture of the race for the White House from 1900 to the historic election of 2000. Over 350 incredible election photographs drawn largely from The Times highlight campaign trail "whistletops," behind-the-scenes meetings, rallies and conventions, victory celebrations and concessions. Campaigns also includes 75 photographs of campaign memorabilia—some quite rare—from private and university collections. Reproductions of the actual New York Times front pages that covered each victory are followed by transcriptions of the lead stories, providing a fascinating glimpse into the political and social fabric of the time. Featuring an in-depth introduction and discussion of the 1992 to 2000 campaigns by author and historian Alan Brinkley, and insightful commentary on each race from 1900 to 1988 by Ted Widmer, Campaigns enriches our understanding of the personalities, strategies, and policies of the men who sought to lead our nation. The book covers the Bush/Gore election in full with 32 pages of pictures and text, including an extended analysis by Professor Brinkley and 25 New York Times front pages from election day to decision day. As a new president starts his first term in office at the dawn of a new millennium—following the longest, and perhaps most controversial election in America's history—this visually stunning and historic book will remain a valuable resource and collector's item for years to come.
