Book: R. L. Leonard «Elections in Britain»

Elections in Britain

This is a sound, lucid account of how the British electoral system works. Because it is detailed, authoritative and non-partisan, it may be read profitably not merely by the intelligent general reader but also by students of political science, government and British constitution at universities, colleges and schools. Not only does this book answer such central questions as: when are elections held? who can vote? what happens on polling day? and how does one become an M. P.? but it also discusses many other interesting facets of the subject in great detail. It explains clearly how and why constituency boundaries have to be altered, how the parties are organized, how campaigns are conducted, how reliable opinion polls are, what happens at by-elections, and what comparison there is between local and national elections. Mr. Leonard's bibliography is a thorough guide for anyone wishing to investigate a particular topic at greater depth.
