Elections in Europe: A Data Handbook
Dieter Nohlen, Philip Stöver
Nomos, 2010 - Political Science - 2070 pages
"Elections in Europe" is the eagerly awaited concluding part of a wider project covering electoral data worldwide. It completes the series of volumes focusing on Africa, on Asia and the Pacific, and on the Americas, all published by Oxford University Press. A comparative introduction on elections and electoral systems, given by the editors, is followed by chapters on each European state written by renowned specialists. Applying systematic criteria and uniform concepts to the information that has been collected, each chapter explains the historical, political, and legal context in which elections take place. The chapters also provide exhaustive statistics on all national elections and referendums conducted in the respective countries. Political scientists worldwide welcome this indispensable source for scholars in the field of cross-national political research. There is no comparable work on the subject.
