Published every two years, The Almanac of American Politics is the definitive guide to understanding the forces that shape American politics.

Authors Michael Barone and Richard E. Cohen mix hard fact and colorful narrative in this unique portrait of the American political system, making The Almanac essential reading both for its in-depth analysis and as an off-the-shelf reference. Over the years, The Almanac has established itself as a Washington institution in its own right and an indispensable resource for anyone involved or interested in the American political scene.

The Almanac of American Politics 2008 includes profiles of every member of Congress and governor as well as in-depth and up-to-date narrative profiles of all 50 states and 435 House districts. Also included are detailed Congressional voting records, hard-to-find census data and current state district maps. The 2008 edition will also offer original content, such as a preview of the 2008 presidential election and an authoritative look at the 2008 mid-term elections. This valuable resource includes state-by-state analysis of the political, cultural and demographic factors that led to the Democrats once again regaining control of the House and Senate.

The Almanac of American Politics 2008 is the one guide you need for insight on the people, places and perceptions that are reshaping American Politics.
