Oxford Handbook of Electoral Systems

I am co-editing the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Electoral Systems from Oxford University Press with Robert J. Pekkanen and Matthew S. Shugart. The book covers core debates about the design and consequences of electoral rules and provides examples of electoral systems in context all over the world. The first chapters have been published online by Oxford University Press and include:

John Carey on Electoral System Design in Divided Societies;
Josep Colomer on Party System Effects on Electoral Systems;
Gary Cox on Portfolio Maximizing Strategies in Parliamentary Elections;
Joel Johnson on Electoral Systems and Campaign Finance;
Ken Kollman on Election Data and Levels of Analysis;
Dan Smith on Electoral Rules and Voter Turnout;
Thomas Carl Lundberg on Electoral Systems in Context: United Kingdom;
Ian McAllister and Toni Makkai on Electoral Systems in Context: Australia;
Jack Vowles on Electoral Systems in Context: New Zealand;
Kuniaki Nemoto on Electoral Systems in Context: Japan; and
Reuven Y. Hazan, Reut Itzkovitch-Malka, and Gideon Rahat on Electoral Systems in Context: Israel.

More chapters are coming soon, including Lisa Handley on Redistricting, Pippa Norris on Electoral Integrity and Electoral Systems, and Matt Golder and Benjamin Ferland on Electoral Rules and Citizen-Elite Ideological Congruence. I will share additional news about the volume as it moves forward for electronic and hard-copy production.
