A comprehensive examination of current issues in voting studies


Elections are the cornerstone of democratic government, yet among scholars several major issues remain unresolved in the study of voting choice. Incorporating work by a host of international scholars, Elections at Home and Abroad addresses a number of these issues to expand the frontiers of voting studies.
The contributors to this volume take as their point of departure the breadth of work done by Warren E. Miller, a key player in the development of scientific voting studies in the United States and Europe. They examine such issues as party partisanship, divided government, voting contexts, theories of voting, and relationships between political elites and mass publics. Reflecting Miller’s own view, the volume includes much work on cross-national studies. For comparativists and Americans, Elections at Home and Abroad speaks to anyone engaged in questions of voting behavior, public opinion, and political parties.
