Mike Huckabee.  Nov. 18, 2008.  DO THE RIGHT THING: Inside the Movement That's Bringing Common Sense Back to America.  New York: Sentinel.  [Penguin imprint]
"Do The Right Thing
is Huckabee’s amazing story, in his own words—from making commercials with Chuck Norris to meeting a Michigan woman who insisted on donating her wedding ring. But this is more than just a campaign memoir. It’s a vision for a smarter, fairer type of politics—“vertical politics”—that focuses on common sense solutions for education, health care, the economy, and many other issues. It’s not about right versus left; it’s about taking America up rather than down.  Huckabee also shows how the Republican Party can heal its divisions—between social and fiscal conservatives, the wealthy and the middle class, the religious and the secular—and become a true majority party again"  [book tour]

—by one of the most lauded political journalists of our time, and one of the most respected pollsters in the business—gives us not only the inside state-by-state guide to how Obama achieved his victory, but also the essential toolbox for understanding the political implications of the 2008 presidential election—where the country stands vis-à-vis Red and Blue states, where it currently is and is headed politically, and whether a political realignment has taken place... The book is divided into four parts, each of which proceeds alphabetically state by state: Battleground States (e.g., Colorado, Florida, Idaho); Emerging Battleground States (e.g., Arizona, Georgia, Montana); Receding Battleground States (e.g., Michigan, Pennsylvania); Red and Blue States (e.g., Idaho and Mississippi, California and New York).

Evan Thomas and the Staff of Newsweek.  Jan. 12, 2009.  A LONG TIME COMING: The Inspiring, Combative 2008 Campaign and the Historic Election of Barack Obama.  New York: PublicAffairs.
"Since 1984, Newsweek has been renowned for its vivid, in-depth special election coverage of the ordeal of running for the presidency. A year before the election, Newsweek assigns reporters to get inside the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates. Newsweek promises not to publish any information until after the votes are cast, and in exchange, the reporters receive remarkable access. They travel with the candidates, are there at crucial turning points and confidential meetings, and uncover stories not covered in day-to-day reporting...  The reporters on the election project team are Eleanor Clift, one of Washington's best-known political reporters and a regular on The McLaughlin Group, Washington correspondent Darren Briscoe, Mike Hastings, Nick Summers, and Katie Connolly."

"Taking its cue from campaign classics like Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 and The Making of the President series, 08 brings politico journalism into the graphic novel form.  Reflect on all the single-issue candidates, the pundits, the meltdowns, the awkward missteps, and the ruthless maneuvers of the scorched-earth campaign trail as they knit themselves into a political tale of the present-day battle for the future of America."

Bernard Goldberg.  Jan. 26, 2009.  A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.  Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing.
In his most provocative book yet, A Slobbering Love Affair, Goldberg shows how the mainstream media's hopelessly one-sided coverage of President Obama has shredded America's trust in journalism and endangered our free society.  Highlighting the media's laughable coverage and shameless hypocrisy, Goldberg exposes how liberal reporters ignored important issues, focused on trivial matters, and attacked those who dared to question "The One." Goldberg also argues that the media's blatant disregard for their traditional role as the fourth estate and government watchdog has endangered America and eroded the notion of a free and fair press.

"This book is the previously untold and epic story of how a political newcomer with no money and an alien name grew into the world’s most powerful leader.

Robert E. Denton, ed.  July 28, 2009. 
THE 2008 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN: A Communication PerspectiveLanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield.
"Here, political communication specialists break down the historic 2008 presidential campaign and go beyond the quantitative facts, electoral counts, and poll results of the election. Factoring in everything from the campaign in popular culture, political cartoons, and the effect of celebrity, the authors look at the early campaign period, the nomination process and conventions, the social and political context, the debates, the role of candidate spouses, candidate strategies, political advertising, and the use of the Internet. This enlightening book shows why more technology doesn't always mean more effective communication and how, as we attempt to make sense of our environment, we collect "political bits" of communication that comprise our voting choices, worldviews, and legislative desires."

Jack Citrin and David Karol, eds..  July 28, 2009.  NOMINATING THE PRESIDENT: Evolution and Revolution in 2008 and Beyond.  Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield.
The 2008 presidential nominations were unprecedented in many ways. Marking another step in the democratization of the selection process and a surprising loss of control by party elites, the contests in both parties were unusually competitive and the outcomes belied the predictions of experts. This book offers a fresh look at the role of parties, the constraints of campaign finance, the status of front-runners, and the significance of rules, race and gender in the post-reform era. In this volume, leading scholars assess the state of the process with original research about money, scheduling, superdelegates, and the role of race and gender in voting.

Along the way Gutgold examines the obstacles and opportunities of women as presidential candidates."

Joe Feagin and Adia Wingfield Harvey.  Sept. 9, 2009.  YES WE CAN?: White Racial Framing and the 2008 Presidential Campaign.  London: Routledge.  [Taylor & Francis]
"This book offers one of the first sociological analyses of Barack Obama’s historic 2008 campaign for the presidency of the United States. Elaborating on the concept of the white racial frame, Harvey Wingfield and Feagin assess the ways racial framing was deployed by principal characters in the 2008 election. This book counters many commonsense assumptions about race, politics, and society, particularly the idea that Obama’s election ushered in a post-racial era. Readers will find this book uniquely valuable because it relies on sound sociological analysis to assess numerous events and aspects of this historic campaign."

Hal Elliott Wert.  Sept. 15, 2009.  HOPE: A Collection of Obama Prints and Posters.  Osceola, WI: Zenith Press.
"This book offers a striking and comprehensive visual chronology of posters created for Obama's run for the presidency. Most have been seen only by a limited number of viewers in the primary states. Others have rarely been seen outside the urban core or the art gallery world. An exception is the Shepard Fairey poster "Hope" that has been seen by millions as has his design for the cover of Time magazine's Man-of-the-Year edition. Importantly, there has been nothing like this outpouring of quality prints and posters in past campaigns."

Theodore F. Sheckels, ed.  Sept. 28, 2009.  CRACKED BUT NOT SHATTERED: Hillary Rodham Clinton's Unsuccessful Campaign for the Presidency.  Lanham, MD: Lexington Books.  [Rowman & Littlefield]
"Cracked But Not Shattered: Hillary Rodham Clinton's Unsuccessful Campaign for the Presidency thoroughly analyzes Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination with an eye to identifying what went wrong-why, as the frontrunner, she ended up not breaking "the glass ceiling." The volume's contributors examine multiple issues in attempt to answer this question, from usual campaign communication topics such as Clinton's rhetoric, debate performance, and advertising to the ways in which she was treated by the media."

Amy Rice and Alicia Sams, directors.  2009 tbd.  BY THE PEOPLE: The Election of Barack ObamaClass 5 Films (Edward Norton).
"Inspired by the freshman senator's dynamism, potential and star-making speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004, Rice initiated the idea of a documentary tracking his experience in politics in early 2006. Shortly thereafter, Class 5 agreed to produce the project and Sams joined to co-direct. Norton then approached Senator Obama and his staff months prior to his decision to run for President and outlined the idea. Senator Obama agreed to grant the team access and Rice and Sams began shooting shortly thereafter, including traveling with the Senator on his trip to Africa in summer of 2006. When the Senator announced his bid for the presidency in 2007, Rice and Sams were there and over the last two and a half years have documented the race with unprecedented access to Obama, his senior campaign staff, family, friends, and volunteers. Shooting will continue through the inauguration in preparation for a 2009 premiere."
