Reviews about The Routledge Historical Atlas of Presidential Elections (Routledge Atlases of American History) (7):
Terr
Along with the errors pointed out by reviewer Sheppard, there was a glitch in the printing .On most maps, there were gray shadings on coastal areas that according to the map key represented " others". Although minor, it was annoying. In general, I found the information presented the geographic sectarianism of the times that was its purpose as explained in the introduction. The accompanying text was abbreviated but this information should be researched elsewhere. As a presentation of geographic data, this is a 5-star book. However the poor fact-checking of the text made it lose a star

As the previous reviewer pointed out, the atlas called West Virginia for Gore last year, which would have given him the election. On the other hand, in the foreword, the author states Gore received 300,000 more votes than Bush, when actually it was a more than 500,000 vote margin - so perhaps he was trying to compensate.

These were far from the only mistakes.

The Atlas also gave Louisiana to Stevenson in 1956 (despite saying in the accompanying text "Louisiana went for a Republican presidential candidate for the first time since 1876"), one of many occasions in which the maps contradict the text.
In its summary of 1936, the text says "Maine had been a bellwether state, voting for the winning candidate since 1860" (in fact, it voted for the losing candidate in 1884, 1892, 1916 and 1932), and "Landon even lost his home state of Kansas, which had voted Republican in every election since its entry into the Union in 1861" (in fact, it voted Populist in 1892 and Democratic in 1896, 1912, 1916 and 1932).

In its summary of 1928, the text says "Smith won only seven states, six in the South plus Massacuhsetts." In fact, Smith won eight states, including Rhode Island, which is also missed on the map.

The map gives Pennsylvania to Cleveland in 1888, when it voted Republican.

There are numerous other errors and omissions - the text leaves out Washington when mentioning the states Bryan lost from 1896-1900; it claims Fillmore carrying Maryland in 1856 was the first time a third party won votes in the Electoral College, when the Anti-Masons carried Vermont in 1832; it claims Pierce failed to win a majority of the popular vote in 1852, when the pie chart next to the text gives him 50.9%; it gives Adams instead of Burr four states in the Congressional balloting that decided the election of 1800.

This has the statistics and election results I was seeking all in one place.

Great book with tons of unknown info. Very clear and descriptive on every presedential election from the beginning of the U.S. Presidency.

The sad part about the review so far and the many mistakes they point out is that they didn't point them all out.
There are many others throughout the book. In 1968, Nixon's first victory, the map correctly shows that Georgia went to Wallace and South Carolina went to Nixon. But the accompanying text states that Georgia went to Nixon, and it leaves out the southern state victory of South Carolina. Oops!

The book states that the 1956 GOP national convention was held in San Francisco, "the first major party convention held in California." But in 1920 the Democrats held their national convention in San Francisco. Oops, again!

After catching several mistakes like these (and the ones mentioned by the other reviewers), it got difficult to take the book or author seriously. I now question not only his opinions, but his "facts" as well.

If you want something pretty, buy this book. If you want something accurate, get something else.

Having the privilege of studying under Dr. Mieczkowski for 2 full years, as well as having worked as research assistant and having him as my Undergraduate advisor at Dowling College on Long Island, I can affirm to you that Dr. Mieczkowski is definitely a well-educated and intelligent person. This book helps to prove that point.
I agree with other reviewers that the book did require some better editing. There are noticable errors in it, particularly in the maps. Otherwise, this book is very handy. The summarizations of each election, dating back to the first ever Presidential election to the most recent Presidential election of 2000, are short, concise and well-researched. Some of the more pivotal and landmark elections generally have more information. The accuracy and detail of each summary definitely shows the extensive research that went into the book.
This book proved to be a very handy and crucial resource to me in my studies at Dowling College, and is an excellent resource to any Presidential or general American Historian. Despite minor flaws, this is a worthwhile book and I highly recommend it to any professor looking for a secondary class resource or to any student looking for a resource to help them in their studies.

This thin, significant book has a wonderful layout in regards to presenting the information for each presidential election in our nation's history. There are maps, pictures, charts and writings pertaining to each presidential election. The information provided in the book is of great value and quite easy to find.
The book can be used with a wide array of individuals with different reading levels. A superb book to have for a class, and a must-have for any political scientist, historian, or avid student of politics.
I agree with the other reviews: this is a useful and attractive book, but more care could have been taken with it. To add to the errors that have already been pointed out, the map for the 1988 election erroneously gives the DC electoral votes to Bush rather than Dukakis, and no explanation is given about Bentsen's single electoral vote. Also, Millard Filmore is not included in the list of presidents at the end of the book, even though the other "unelected" presidents are. The text does not mention that he succeeded Zachary Taylor, and his partial term as president is only mentioned in passing in relation to his later presidential bid.
