Duty and Choice
Devoted to exploring elections as the central act in a democracy, Duty and Choice: The Evolution of the Study of Voting and Voters is animated by a set of three overarching questions: why do some citizens vote while others do not? how do voters decide to cast their ballots for one candidate and not another? and how does the context in which a citizen lives influence the choices they make? Organized into three sections focused on turnout, vote choice, and electoral systems, the volume seeks to provide novel insights into the most pressing questions for scholars of vote choice and voting behavior. In addition to featuring several prominent Canadian scholars, the collection includes chapters by leading scholars from the US and Europe.
