Becoming a Candidate : Political Ambition and the Decision to Run for Office Hardback

Description

Becoming a Candidate: Political Ambition and the Decision to Run for Office explores the factors that drive political ambition at the earliest stages.

Using data from a comprehensive survey of thousands of eligible candidates, Jennifer L.

Lawless systematically investigates what compels certain citizens to pursue elective positions and others to recoil at the notion.

Lawless assesses personal factors, such as race, gender and family dynamics, that affect an eligible candidate's likelihood of considering a run for office.

She also focuses on eligible candidates' professional lives and attitudes toward the political system.
