This four-volume collection provides a rich overview of one of the core areas of political science research: voting. The quantitative study of voting behaviour (psepholgy) in particular has developed as a highly specialised field since the 1980s and has spawned a vast literature from a wide array of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. This set maps out the development of psephology in the post-war period to its current state, and covers the following broad themes: " Historical evolution of voting studies " Sociological models " Cognition and the voter calculus " Electoral systems " The electoral context " Debates and methodology Series description: The SAGE Library of Political Science collects together the articles that have been most influential in shaping the discipline. Each multi-volume set presents a collection of field-defining published works, both classical and contemporary, sourced from the foremost publications in the discipline by an internationally renowned editor or editorial team. They also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the past, present and likely future of each area. The series covers both the key approaches to studying the discipline and the primary sub-fields that form the focus of political scientists' work. The SAGE Library of Political Science will be an essential addition for university libraries throughout the world with an interest in Political Science.
