EDITED BY P. COWLEY & R. FORD    Book Number: 85750    Product format: Paperback

A follow up to code 85769, here is another 50 things you need to know about elections. 50 leading political experts delve into the fascinating field of electoral politics, shedding a light on how we vote in Britain and around the world. Learn about the shifting landscape of party politics and the perceptions and misconceptions that shape our opinions of our politicians and of each other. Learn about the factors informing voter habits from class, race and gender, to the Internet and the weather and how which political party has the most sexually satisfied supporters. Forget mind-numbing numbers and difficult demographics, this sharp and frequently hilarious volume fizzes with accessible facts and figures and unexpected insight into the human condition. James Morris writes on the myths of target voters, Matt Wall on the value of political gambling, Ron Johnston on Britain's vanishing marginal seats, Robert Ford on romance across party lines, Lauren McLaren on immigration and political legitimacy and Oliver Heath on MPs and voters. Also gender quotas and identities, ethnic minority representation, party manifestoes, the devolution paradox, the Scottish Independence Referendum, Wales, voluntary organisations, polarisation, before looking at Poland, America, Ireland, blue-collar support for the French radical right, German party funding, Japan and if Jeremy Corbyn could have kept Britain in the EU. And then a bit more sex in the 51st essay entitled 'Happiness and a Penis: Politics and Sexual Satisfaction' by Joe Twyman. 308pp in paperback.
