    DescriptionIn this fully revised and updated edition of British General Elections since 1945 David Butler chronicles the demeanour and result of each post--war election. He also draws on the most recent research to examine how much the way in which elections have been stages and fought has altered, with press conferences, advertising, opinion polls and media events transforming the electoral process. In considering these issues alongside other aspects -- the law, the constituencies, the electoral system itself, voter behaviour -- Dr Butler provides an invaluable guide to the continuities and change which have characterized British general elections for two generations.

    Back cover copy
    Fourteen general elections have been held in Britain in the post-war period, from Clement Attlee's surprise sweep to power in 1945 to the Conservatives' fourth consecutive victory in 1992. Several of these fourteen landmark events in British political history had unexpected results; all had far-reaching consequences. In this fully revised and updated edition of "British General Elections Since 1945 " David Butler chronicles the demeanor and result of each post-war election. He also draws on the most recent research to examine how much the way in which elections have been staged and fought has altered, with press conferences, advertizing, opinion polls and media events transforming the electoral process. In considering these issues alongside other aspects - the law, the constituencies, the electoral system itself, voter behavior - Dr Butler provides an invaluable guide to the continuities and change which have characterized British general elections for two generations.
