Choice Review

CQ's revised edition of their dictionary of words and phrases descriptive of American elections presents 200 terms, alphabetically arranged, followed by concise and readable essays defining them. The first edition (CH, Dec'99) was written, as is the second, by John L. Moore, an experienced CQ author and editor. The book offers a detailed subject index, and entries for such topics as "Bellwether," "Boll Weevil," "Chad," "Mugwump," and "Whistle Stop." ^BSumming Up: Recommended. All collections. D. W.
