Elections encapsulate both what the American nation is, and where it wants to go. In this regard, the 2012 election may be the most important in a generation: it marked a still-contentious turn in the nation's understanding of itself. "The American Election 2012" explores these themes and their broader implications within the contemporary American political landscape. Unified by the thesis that elections and policies act together dynamically, this edited volume is organized into four sections: the state of American political parties, emerging strategies in 2012 campaigns, foreign and domestic policy implications, and the role of religion in modern campaigning. As this collection shows, the dreams and aspirations of the electorate are enacted in, and confronted by, politics - creating a dynamic between elections and representation that extends beyond the ballot box
