About the Author

Kathleen E. Kendall is Associate Professor of Communication at the University at Albany, State University of New York.


"This fresh and different book brings current approaches in political communication to bear on the most recent election in a way that makes the field of political communication accessable to non-specialized readers. Kendall not only provides a variety of very insightful analyses of the 1992 election that will certainly enhance the understanding of that campaign, but she also provides a theoretical framework for studying presidential campaigns without being pretentious about it." - Craig Allen Smith, The University of North Carolina, Greensboro
