Editorial Reviews

`Britain Votes 2001 presents a solid lineup of leading scholars and a thorough review of the core issues of the election. . . While, as one would expect, there is a great deal of overlap among the volumes on the 2001 election, Britain Votes 2001 has the advantage of offering a fairlycomprehensive selection of subjects. . . Britain Votes 2001 is a 'must have' for those wanting a complete library on Labour's second landslide.'Terrence Casey, Democratization
