Scotland Decides by David Denver
Book DescriptionScotland has a parliament for the first time in almost 300 years, and this book is an account of how this came about. The authors trace the origins and history of the demand for home rule in Scotland, focusing particularly on developments following the failure of the first referendum on the issue in 1979, which culminated in a second referendum in September 1997. This major political event attracted national and international interest, and its decisive result was a milestone in Scottish history. This work presents an analysis of the referendum campaign at both national and local levels, including media coverage of the event and the outcome. The reactions of voters are explored on the basis of a large survey of the electorate, and lessons to be learnt about referendums in the UK and elsewhere are discussed.

British General Elections Since 1964, Hardback (February 2014)
The first book to look at a succession of British general elections in significant detail. By starting the survey in 1964 rather than the traditional date of 1945, it can also focus more rigorously on the changes which began in the 1960s and still affect general elections today.
Elections and Voters in Britain, Hardback (March 2012)
The revised edition of this popular text incorporates material from the 2010 general election and discusses the latest research. The book provides a lucid account of the development of electoral politics in Britain over the post war period but focuses particularly on recent elections making full use of British Election Study (BES) survey data.
Voting for a Scottish Government, Hardback (July 2010)
This is a study of the historic 2007 Scottish Parliament election in which the SNP supplanted Labour as Scotland's largest party for the first time ever, and went on to form the Scottish Government.
