"In short, this book raises as many new questions as it answers and will likely set the research agenda for the study of American federalism for years to come."

"In this sophisticated book, Nicholson-Crotty combines two robust literatures—one on state politics, the other on fiscal federalism—in new, interesting, and important ways. A compelling mixed-methods account of how governors seek and spend grants to successfully advance both their political and policy goals."

"Governors, Grants, and Elections brings partisan and electoral calculations into the mix, treating politicians the way that the real world does rather than as the robotic 'goods providers' of many social choice models. Nicholson-Crotty mixes qualitative evidence into a series of convincing empirical tests that rely on modern quantitative methods."
