Review by

The seventeenth and latest in the invaluable series of rapid reviews of British General Elections since 1945. It sets the context of the campaign and describes how it progressed in detail (including the formation of the coalition). This is supplemented by detailed statistical tables and an illuminating 42 page analysis of the results.In spite of its rapid appearance, I only spotted 10 errors.A book which should be on the shelves of anyone with a serious interest in British politics.
