Elections and Voting Behavior

Ed. Pippa Norris

Book published 1998 Ashgate/Dartmouth Publishing Company


This series brings together the most significant journal articles to appear in the field of comparative politics over the past 30 years. The aim is to render readily accessible to teachers, researchers and students an extensive range of essays which, together, provide an indispensable basis for understanding both the established conceptual terrain and the new ground being broken in the rapidly changing field of comparative political analysis. This series is divided into three major sections: Institutional Studies, Thematic Studies, and Country Studies.
