Summary
  • "This is the first study in half a century to focus on the election of 1796. At first glance, the first presidential contest looks unfamiliar--parties were frowned upon, there was no national vote, and the candidates did not even participate (the political mores of the day forbade it). Yet for all that, Jeffrey L. Pasley contends, the election of 1796 was 'absolutely seminal,' setting the stage for all of American politics to follow."--book jacket
  • Argues that, despite its passivity and lack of active campaigning, the election of 1796 set the stage for all of American politics to follow
