Presidential Nominating Politics in 1952
By Paul T. David, Malcolm Moos and Ralph M. Goldman
Johns Hopkins Press, 1954, 5 pp

This enormous and valuable coöperative undertaking, prepared under the auspices of the American Political Science Association with the coöperation of the Brookings Institution and the work of many political scientists, is a detailed study of the whole presidential nominating process of both major parties in 1952, including the way the delegates to the conventions were selected in the 48 states. The first volume covers the pre-convention campaign and the two national conventions. The other four volumes proceed, state by state, to examine the selection process, the composition of the states' delegations, and their voting record. A unique source book.
