“Tara Ross again presents a well-reasoned blend of sound historical analysis and simple common sense. Her latest book gives Americans even more reasons to support and preserve the Electoral College.”

Edwin Meese III

former U.S. Attorney General

“A compendium of legal and historical analysis that nevertheless proves utterly engrossing, The Indispensable Electoral College represents a really splendid achievement. Anyone who reads the volume will find himself thoroughly purged of any impulse to do away with the Electoral College, feeling instead a deep appreciation for the odd but essential institution. ‘Indispensable' is the word.”

Peter Robinson

Fellow at the Hoover Institution and former speechwriter to President Reagan

“The Indispensable Electoral College is an essential primer on presidential elections in the United States. Tara Ross offers a sweeping and nuanced examination of the Electoral College and provides a compelling defense of our oft-misunderstood election system. Her easy narrative style deftly navigates a deep body of history, politics, and law.”

Derek T. Muller

Associate Professor of Law, Pepperdine University School of Law

“Tara Ross once again produces a meticulously researched book that makes a compelling case for preserving the Founding Father’s vision of a federalist republic in which a diverse people have the tools to live peacefully together. Federalism is more than just a bygone relic. It is an indispensable ingredient in America’s constitutional republic—and its presidential election system—as The Indispensable Electoral College so capably demonstrates.”

Robert M. Hardaway

Author of The Electoral College and the Constitution: The Case for Preserving Federalism and Professor of Law, University of Denver Sturm College of Law

 “Reader friendly” – “Better still, Ross’s defense is no curmudgeonly conservative plea for respecting tradition. It is a full throated roar.”

Bradley A. Smith

former FEC Commissioner

“Ross and Smith restore George Washington’s view of church and state to its proper place in history, which will inevitably change what we think and say in the present. Hint: He and Thomas Jefferson didn't see eye to eye.”

Richard Brookhiser

Author of What Would the Founders Do? and Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington
