The 2010 general election is the most eagerly awaited contest in Britain since 1997. For the first time in over a decade, there is realistic chance of a change of party in power. Yet, the contest may well be closer and indeed more complicated in its outcome than the 1997 election. With Britain emerging from the economic recession, assumptions about the impact of the economy on the vote will really be put to the test.This book features articles from a special issue of the Journal of Elections, Public Opinion & Parties on the 2010 British General Election. The articles represent high quality and data-rich examinations of the election, including a long article from the team running the major British Election Survey. It is intended for audiences who want to go beyond a simple description of the election towards a more full understanding of why the election turned out the way it did.This book was published as a special edition of Journal of Elections, Public Opinion & Parties .
