Review of the hardback: 'This is an agenda setter for the next generation of electoral systems research. Renwick makes a major contribution by combining recognition that there is more than one path to electoral reform with a schema that enables us to move beyond a series of narratives to more systematic understanding.' Richard S. Katz, Johns Hopkins University
Review of the hardback: 'Alan Renwick has produced a well-argued study of "the long and winding road" to electoral system change. Thoughtful and original, this is a well-told tale of miscalculation and misadventure, certain to be much cited. A fine contribution.' Stephen Levine ONZM, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
Review of the hardback: 'The past two decades have witnessed an explosion in research on electoral systems, telling us pretty much all we could ever hope to know about how they impact on our wider political institutions - in other words about electoral systems as independent variables. This book is the first major cross-national study of its type to turn the tables on electoral systems, to examine them as the dependent variables, as the things to be explained. In this definitive work, Renwick closely scrutinises, compares and explains the electoral reform processes of key industrialised democracies over the past twenty years.' David Farrell, University College Dublin
