Stop the Campaign!

Campaign!: The 1983 Election That Rocked Chicago by Peter NolanAnd now a message from our friend and author, Peter Nolan:

Have you grown weary of this early presidential election cycle? A little tired of Trump, Dr. Ben, Hillary, Bernie and the others? Are the relentless and repetitious cable news networks getting you down? And yet you’re still a political junkie. Take a little break. Go back over thirty years and take a look at CAMPAIGN! The 1983 Election That Rocked Chicago. Yes it was nasty, the race card came up many times. David Axelrod, future adviser to Pres. Obama was there as a young reporter, taking it all in. But the campaign took only four months and Chicago had its first black mayor, Harold Washington. It was a fun romp.

You can pick up your copy on Amazon, Amika Press, Kindle, Kobo or Nook.
