"an entertaining and superbly well-informed guide to the often mysterious workings behind electoral outcomes"

An election, they suggest, is a window into the soul of the electorate. The view from that window may not be very appealing — one of the book’s epigraphs is Gore Vidal’s remark that ‘at any given moment, public opinion is a chaos of superstition, misinformation and prejudice’. But the essays offer an entertaining and superbly well-informed guide to the often mysterious workings behind electoral outcomes.
