UW Professor Contributes to Book on 2008 Election
September 14, 2011 — Gerald R. Webster, a professor in the University of Wyoming Department of Geography, was among the contributors to "Atlas of the 2008 Elections," a 320-page book that analyzes and maps the campaigns, primaries, general election and key state referenda from the 2008 elections.
Webster was one of six editors of the book that documents one of the most significant elections in recent United States history. The book's 45 contributors provide detailed assessments of presidential results at the national, regional and statewide levels, plus trace voting patterns for key racial, ethnic, religious and occupational groups.
"The atlas should be of value to anyone with interests in politics and elections, most particularly as we get closer to the 2012 election," Webster says.
"Atlas of the 2008 Elections" was published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
