A professor at Northwest Missouri State University has received high praise for a book he edited last year. 

Professor of Political Science at Northwest, Dr. Robert Dewhirst, edited the book, "The Road to Congress 2010," a book that features essays and case studies that focus on campaigns for House and Senate seats across the United States during the 2010 election cycle. The entire series focuses on local context, congressional campaigns and how those shape how members of Congress arrive on Capitol Hill. In its May issue, Choice Reviews Online, a major review publication for libraries, gave it a "highly recommended" review and said the book is particularly valuable for teaching undergraduate courses that focus on campaigns and elections.
