This two-volume work continues the series of election data handbooks published by OUP. It presents a first-ever compendium of electoral data for all 35 countries in the Americas since the introduction of universal male suffrage. Following the overall structure of the series, an initial comparative introduction on elections and electoral systems is followed by chapters on each country. Written by knowledgeable and renowned scholars, the contributions examine the evolution of constitutional and electoral arrangements and provide systematic surveys of the up-to-date electoral provisions and electoral rules. These widely differing rules exert considerable influence on party systems and political processes. Exhaustive statistics on all national elections and referendums are given in each chapter. Together with the other books of this series, Elections in the Americas is a highly reliable resource for historical and cross-national comparisons of elections and electoral systems worldwide.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dieter Nohlen's German-language elections handbook for Latin America (1993) was a superb data source that I have been using steadily. The updated English version, also including North America, will be indispensable for all those who study elections, parties, and democratization comparatively. * Rein Taagepera, University of California, Irvine, and University of Tartu, Estonia *
'If, historically, academic studies have for the most part ignored elections in Latin America, the widespread advance of democracy during the last quarter of a century has put the electoral process at the center of analysis in the field of political science. The need for further empirical elaboration, with respect both to the results themselves as well as to the laws and norms governing elections, is an objective that this book successfully fulfils. At the same time, by presenting the data in a homogenous manner that facilitates comparative analysis, this book must be considered a fundamental work of reference. * Manuel Alcantara, University of Salamanca *
'Dieter Nohlen and his team have once again exceeded all expectations. Elections in the Americas is the first comprehensive edition covering elections on the entire continent and will certainly remain a beacon for many years to come. * Sonia Picado, President, Interamerican Institute for Human Rights, Costa Rica *
