Ed. Pippa Norris

Book published 2001 Oxford University Press 0-19-851049-7 Hansard Society Series in Politics and Government UK Price: 16.99   


As on previous occasions, Oxford University Press has published a special issue of Parliamentary Affairs on the June 2001 UK general election, in conjunction with the Hansard Society, and this volume is also available as a book. The volume provides a balanced, comprehensive and topical overview of the campaign and analysis of the results written in a straightforward, clear and lively style for students, colleagues and practitioners.


'Britain Votes 2001 presents a solid lineup of leading scholars and a thorough review of the core issues of the election. . . While, as one would expect, there is a great deal of overlap among the volumes on the 2001 election, Britain Votes 2001 has the advantage of offering a fairly comprehensive selection of subjects. . . Britain Votes 2001 is a 'must have' for those wanting a complete library on Labour's second landslide.' -Terrence Casey, Democratization
