An excellent volume covering all the major classical topics in political and electoral behavior, with a first-class line up of leading international scholars, this Handbook will prove invaluable for colleagues and students seeking a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the sub-field
Elections are the core institution of liberal democracy, and the empirical study of voters' choices has therefore served as a theoretical and methodological pacemaker of modern political science. While the central ideas sketched by the field's pioneer studies have proven remarkably fruitful over the years, its theoretical and methodological ingenuity has created a literature of such complexity that a comprehensive handbook like this one is long overdue. Its three editors are outstanding specialists.
Voting is a simple act while understanding and explaining is rather complex. The Sage Handbook of Electoral Behaviour leads the reader – both the experienced scholar and practitioner as well as the student – through the many routes that research has explored overtime. Traditional topics as well as novel ones find in this text a thoroughly discussion that enable us to understand the transformation of the many factors that contribute to voting choice in contemporary politics. A rewarding read for all those interested in elections and voting.
This volume is an excellent overview of the whole field of research into Electoral Behaviour and will be an invaluable source for students of electoral choice going forward
