Today’s featured author is Robert Alexander, professor of political science and department chair at Ohio Northern University, whose well-praised book Presidential Electors and the Electoral College has led to him being the go-to person on presidential elections for both national and local media outlets (see the Cambria Press post on this). Given that the book has been recommended by CHOICE for being “a solid, well-composed work of research” and “an important, if not definitive, study of the subject,” he is also the natural choice in learning more about the 2016 elections. And just in time: Dr. Alexander’s most recent article was just published today in the Cleveland Plain Dealer!
Dr. Alexander’s book has also been lauded by eminent political scientists: Gary E. Bugh (Texas A&M University) declares that it is “indispensible,” Michael Genovese (Loyola Marymount University) praises it for its “exhaustive research” and for being an “eye opener,” and Tom Cronin (Colorado College) calls it “valuable and much needed.”
The book has caught the attention not only of academics but politicians as well. Mark Ritchie, Minnesota Secretary of State, puts it best when he says “Dr. Alexander has brought this very important history to life in a way that can help all of us look more carefully into the future. With lots of current public debate about the future of the Electoral College, this book provides a comprehensive and much-needed examination of one of the challenges that we have faced since the founding of our nation.”
This book is in the Politics, Institutions, and Public Policy in America book series by Scott Frisch and Sean Kelly.
