This handy little reference book by Kasniunas and Shea (both, Allegheny College) provides a current snapshot of the complex and often confusing jumble of campaign and election regulations in all 50 states. Each section spotlights a different state and includes a small map; voter turnout statistics for the last five statewide elections; outcomes for the most recent presidential and gubernatorial general elections; an overview of current voting, candidate, campaign finance, and lobbying regulations; and basic information on judicial elections, ballot initiatives, and referenda, when applicable. Even without an index or extensive images, this well-written and concise single volume provides researchers and citizens with an excellent ready-reference resource. A future edition might benefit from inclusion of the District of Columbia. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates, in particular; also graduate students and researchers/faculty. C. A. Collins Bucks County Community College
