Book reviewed in academic journals

The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign has been reviewed in several academic journals:

Perspectives on Politics describes it as, “a superior work of presidential scholarship” that is “well written and accessible.”

Presidential Studies Quarterly calls the ”analyses… exceptional in their linkage of archive-sourced qualitative information and empirical data measuring aspects of presidential behavior.”

The Review of Politics declares it, ”a valuable contribution to political science literature regarding the relationship between changes in institutional, electoral, and campaign-finance pressures and incentives and changes in presidential behavior.”

Choice Reviews calls it a, "well-written, well-researched book [that] marshals considerable evidence to demonstrate that modern presidents are constantly in campaign mode, and that the pressure to operate as such has intensified over the last four decades."

Library Journal: “No scholar to date has delved into the detail of what the ‘permanent campaign’ means for U.S. presidents to the degree that Doherty has done here.”
