“Carson and Sievert have produced a highly original work of scholarship. They convincingly show that the reelection imperative has been a driving element of congressional politics since the founding of the republic. Their book is an accessible and important contribution to the study of American politics.”
—Erik Engstrom, University of California, Davis
“This book will fundamentally change the way we think about electoral competition and political careers over the course of American history.”
—Charles Finnochiaro, University of Oklahoma
