This now illustrated, greatly expanded, and fully updated edition of one of our most acclaimed reference works provides detailed biographical sketches for the 95 United States major party and significant third-party nominees who were never elected president or vice president.
New to this edition are four subsequent elections, biographies of 41 third-tier candidates who received at least 2 percent of the popular vote or 5 percent of the electoral vote, portraits or photographs of every single nominee, and revisions and updates of all biographies. The candidates' lives and careers are fully revealed and an analysis is provided of how they might have fared if they had been elected.
