Editorial Reviews

"Like all good scientific works, French Presidential Elections answers important existing questions and poses new ones...Lewis-Beck, Nadeau and Bélanger have given us a most useful roadmap that will guide future inquiries. The result of their efforts is an outstanding example of the contemporary science of electoral choice." -From the Foreword by Harold D. Clarke, Ashbel Smith Professor, School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, University of Texas at Dallas, USA"A superbly crafted inquiry of French elections from Mitterand to Sarkozy, with an uncanny sense for enduring as well as novel patterns of voting. Mindful of the peculiarities of la vie francaise, but also appealing for its broad theoretical outlook on electoral choice." -Helmut Norpoth, Professor, Department of Political Science, Stony Brook University, USA
