About the Authors
  • Updated to include the 1992 election, The British Electorate is an essential reference for social and political researchers on voting patterns and public opinion in Britain over the past quarter century. Its tables show trends between 1963 and 1992 in the vote, turnout, and party membership; and attitudes to a range of issues, such as nationalization, capital punishment and abortion. Trends among subgroups of the electorate such as men and women, young and old, trade unionists, the unemployed, Conservative and Labour voters, and many others are also traced.

    • Clearly laid out and easy to use
    • Updated to include 1992 data, now in paperback
    • Should appeal to sociologists, and political psychologists, and be used as a reference by media organisations
