The 2012 presidential election is still being deconstructed by campaign strategists, political scientists and future candidates. In a new book, veteran journalist Dan Balz offers a detailed postmortem of the battle waged between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Balz underscores the unprecedented role of social media and data analysis in the race, and he explains what it all means for future American elections.
