Editorial Reviews


"One virtue of this carefully crafted, fact-laden compendium is that there aren't any rankings, making it even more appealing. An excellent introduction propels the reader into a thicket of politics, ambition, greed and even a few instances of pure public service."

"The second edition updates an important reference on New Jersey's executive leaders. A well-constructed introduction shapes the book's thematic contours while its central thesis concerns the impact of New Jersey's shifting political realities on its gubernatorial leadership. Fifty-six scholars contribute concise but rich biographies of the 74 leaders who have held office. Supported by a comprehensive bibliography, this title remains an indispensable reference for Garden State political history. Highly recommended."
