UChicago Press free eBook of the month

The University of Chicago's free eBook of the month for October is
Inside the Presidential Debates: Their Improbable Past and Promising Future
by Newton N. Minow and Craig L. LaMay

The book can be obtained by following this link to the press' web site, providing an email address, and downloading via Adobe Digital Editions. As with most of their titles, this one is a (DRMed) PDF.

Quote:
Newton Minow was the originator of the televised presidential debate and has been the foremost promoter of them for more than fifty years. He is uniquely qualified to tell the story of the debates: their creation, evolution, and the role they play in our elections.
Quote:
“There may be no one alive who cares more about America’s democracy than Newton Minow, who was there at the creation of the modern political debate. The riveting first-person stories he and Craig LaMay tell of debates in one election after another take us to the heart of American political life and argue for a continued central role for debates in our electoral process. Their book is must reading for anyone who wants to understand how to ensure that comes about.”—Judy Woodruff
