The ninth book in the long-running Britiain at the Polls series, the 2010 edition looks back at the political landscape since 2005 with special focus on the transition from Tony Blair to Gordon Brown and the impact of events such as the the financial crisis, the parliamentary expenses scandal and the first ever leaders' debates. The 2010 election is analysised in this context and the final chapters look ahead to assess the fortunes of the new government. A strong line-up of contributors includes Philip Norton, Paul Webb, James A. Stimson, Charles Pattie, Michael Moran and Ron Johnston. Praise for Britain at the Polls 2005: 'Britain at the Polls is political science at its best: thorough but not dry; serious yet accessible; trenchant but not mendacious.ÔÖ - Peter Kellner ÔÿA fresh insight into the 2005 general election, both what happened and, above all, the significance for the direction of British politics in the Blair and post-Blair erasÔªÔÖ - Peter Riddell ÔÿÔªa thoughtful, lively and stimulating account of the underlying reasons for the historic third successive Labour victory. With a first-class set of contributors this well-written and accessible volume will be essential reading for all concerned with British elections, voting behavior and party politics.ÔÖ - Pippa Norris

'This is an outstanding collection of papers by an outstanding cast of authors. It tells the story of the remarkable election of 2010 to be sure, but it also makes general patterns in British politics much more understandable. I heartily endorse it.' Christopher Wlezien 'This volume is a worthy contribution to a long-running and valuable series of post-election analyses. It provides insights which are of immediate interest, and in coming years it will be a useful reference for those who want to recall 'what really happened' in the important election of 2010.'
