Overview

Since the elections of 1987, the Political Studies Association of Ireland has published books on each Irish general election. This latest volume covers the 1997 elections and is the first study to provide an in-depth analysis of both the campaign and the election results.Written in an accessible and nontechnical style, the contributors are internationally acknowledged experts in party politics and elections.
