Political communications : the general election campaign of 1987( Book )

29 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The results of British elections depend increasingly on what happens during the intensive four-week campaign, a period shaped not simply by what politicians do and say, but by how the campaign is reported to the public through the mass media. This book, the fourth such collection on each election since 1979, examines the dialogue conducted via the press, television and the opinion polls between politicians and the people in the 1992 campaign. A mixture of academic research, expert experience and personal reflection, the chapters are written by academic scholars and by professionals from the worlds of television, newspapers, polling and party organisation. The book will be of great interest not only to academic political scientists, but to politicians, journalists, market researchers and party workersindeed, to all with an active interest in elections and the mass media."--Jacket
The blunders of our governments by Anthony King( )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A gross mistake; an error due to stupidity or carelessness. There are a handful of cock-ups that we remember all too well, from the poll tax to the Millennium Dome. However, the list is longer than most of us realize - and it's growing. With unrivalled political savvy and a keen sense of irony, distinguished political scientists Anthony King and Ivor Crewe open our eyes to the worst government horror stories and explain why the British political system is quite so prone to appalling mistakes. You will discover why: The government wasted up to GBP20 billion pounds in a failed scheme to update London's Underground system. Tens of thousands of single mothers were left in poverty without financial support from absent fathers. Tony Blair committed the NHS to the biggest civilian IT project the world has ever seen, despite knowing next to nothing about computing. The Assets Recovery Agency cost far more to run than it ever clawed back from the proceeds of organised crime. The Coalition government is at least as blunder-prone as any of its predecessors. Groupthink, constantly rotating ministers and a weak parliament all contribute to wasted billions and illogical policy. But, it doesn't have to be this way. Informed by years of research and interviews with senior cabinet ministers and civil servants, this razor-sharp diagnosis of flawed government is required reading for every UK citizen. With its spirited prescriptions for more fool-proof policymaking, it will prove to be one of the most important political books of the decade
SDP : the birth, life and death of the Social Democratic Party by Ivor Crewe( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Launched on a wave of euphoria in 1981, the SDP aroused the hopes and enthusiasm of millions of people. Promising to break the mould of British politics, its leaders included four of the most respected figures in British public life - Roy Jenkins, David Owen, Shirley Williams and Bill Rodgers. But the SDP failed. Despite winning, with the Liberals, a quarter of the vote in two general elections, by the autumn of 1987 it had disintegrated amidst acrimony and bitter infighting. This book, based on unprecedented access to the SDP's archive, analyses in detail the reasons for its early success and its ultimate demise

24 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The October 1974 cross-section is part of a continuing series of surveys of the British electorate, begun by David Butler and Donald Stokes at Nuffield College, Oxford, in 1963, and continued at the University of Essex. For the October 1974 Cross-Section survey, 2,365 British electors were interviewed, of which 1,674 had also been interviewed in the February 1974 cross-section, although this is NOT a panel file. As with other surveys in the series, electors in Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands and Islands were excluded from the sampling frame. Interviewed in October 1974 (and stretching to January 1975 in order to boost the response rate), respondents answered questions relating to the mass media (e.g., attention to newspapers and television and perceived bias in newspapers), their first and second choices in the October 1974 general election, and their opinions of the Conservative, Labour, Liberal, Scottish Nationalist, and Plaid Cymru political parties (e.g., perceived difference among parties, knowledge of party position/record, party identification, and the strength of party preference). Respondents also were asked for their views on a range of social issues relating to domestic and foreign affairs, with emphasis on the economy and the Common Market. Respondents were then asked how the parties stood on each issue, and how much that influenced the respondent's vote. Some of the issues include rising prices, strikes, unemployment, pensions, housing, North Sea oil, taxation, the Common Market, social services, nationalization, wage controls, and the amount of power held by unions and by big business. Respondents were also asked for their attitudes about their personal financial status, change/getting ahead, life in general, today's standards, local government, their own occupation, and the government's achievements. They also gave their predictions for Brit ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/07870.xml
