Reviews of the first edition: 'For anyone studying elections and voters... this is an essential purchase...Denver observes that his text is not intended for academic colleagues...but I have a suspicion that many of his peers will be using the text to bring themselves up to speed regarding questions that they were too embarrassed to ask.' - Michael Thrasher, Parliamentary Affairs 'Excellent...Informative, concise and lucid; the best exposition of modern debates and explanations regarding voting behaviour.' - Jonathan Tonge, University of Salford, UK '...an overall summary of the work of specialists in electoral analysis...Recommended.' - M. Curtis, Choice 'This is a wonderful textbook that can be recommended without reservation as a core text for undergraduate...[and] as a very useful introductory text for postgraduate students...Denver has the enviable knack of finding just the right way to explain complex issues to the non-expert reader...' - John Bartle, Political Studies Review
