This important contribution to the study of Canadian elections forcefully argues that knowledge of the dynamics at the local level is essential to a full understanding of Canadian polity, its underlying social basis, and the factors that determine successful election campaigns. As such, Parties, Candidates, and Constituency Campaigns in Canadian Elections will intrigue not only political scientists and students of Canadian politics but also election candidates and party strategists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... a welcome contribution to this growing literature ... this is a careful study of a heretofore neglected area of Canadian politics. It makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of Canadian parties as well expanding our appreciation of how elections work in Canada. -- Lynda Erickson * Australian Journal of Political Science, Vol. 35, No. 1 *
Sayers' insistence on the continued vitality and importance of local political forces is refreshingly counterorthodox ... The book is richly suggestive of hypotheses to guide further work in the area ... It reveals much of interest to students of elections, but he also deepens appreciation of the important role played by local party associations in the operation of Canada's system of representative democracy. As such, Sayers' work deserves a wide audience amongst students of Canadian elections and political parties. -- Munroe Eagles * Canadian Journal of Political Science *
The strength of this study is a systematic theoretical approach to the development of testable hypotheses. Future studies of constituency-level politics will likely make use of the framework developed in this book. -- Eric P. Mintz * CBRA 4071 *
