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 the 62 states in Asia, Australia and Oceania from their independence to the present. Following the overall structure of the series, an initialcomparative introduction on elections and electoral systems is followed by chapters on each state of the region. Written by knowledgeable and renowned scholars, the contributions examine the evolution of institutional and electoral arrangements, and provide systematic surveys of the up-to-dateelectoral provisions and their historical development. Exhaustive statistics on national elections and referendums are given in each chapter. Together with the other books of this series, Elections in Asia and the Pacific is a highly reliable resource for historical and cross-national comparisons ofelections and electoral systems world-wide. The second volume of Elections in Asia and the Pacific covers the Asia-Pacific area, i.e. the 30 independent states of East Asia (including Japan), South East Asia and the South Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand).

Editorial Reviews

`'Elections in Asia and the Pacific represents a major work of reference and analysis that will be invaluable for specialist and generalist alike. Those with expertise in specific regions will be impressed with the way in which each chapter explains the historical, political and legal contextswithin which elections take place and at the range of data provided. In particular the country studies offer not just a simple break down of national election results, but a regional analysis which, even in those countries where elections are constrained, can offer a good indication of differentiallevels of support for the regime. For those who wish to take their studies further the bibliographies provide exceptionally good guidance to both official primary sources and to secondary analyses of the subject. A book no student of elections can afford to be without.'Dr John Anderson, Department of International Relations, University of St Andrews, Scotland
