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. The book follows the tradition set in previous volumes in two respects: many of the contributors have written on the same topics in earlier volumes and, where appropriate, this book continues similar themes. However, How Ireland Voted 1997 places greater attention on the election campaign itself and the characteristics of the new Dail.
