The "British Elections and Parties" series publishes research on parties, elections and voting behaviour in Britain, providing analyses of current and historical developments. It is produced under the auspices of the Political Studies Association's Election, Public Opinion and Parties study group.
Volume 9 includes research based around four themes: electoral reform; partisanship and voting; parliamentary behaviour; and the attitudes of the young. It provides a source of data on public opinion polls, a summary of local election results, UK referendums, key economic indicators, political parties and a chronology of major political events in 1998.
'As always these collections present a wealth of material covering an enormous range, all of which will be essential reading for those interested in understanding modern British politics.' - Contemporary Review
'[The Review] has established a reputation for bringing cutting edge research speedily into the public domain and encouraging younger scholars. This volume is no exception.' - Parliamentary Affairs
'Some time ago I reviewed volume six of this series … on the evidence of that, and the one under review, I am likely to be put to the expense of buying the rest of the series, such is their value for classroom teachers as well as academics.' - Talking Politics
