   schema:reviewBody ""Elections and parties are obvious cornerstones of democratic regimes. Though intensively researched and widely debated through the post-war literature, these topics deserve continuous attention to keep up with an accelerating rate of change of both collective actors, legal rules, and their socio-political environment. The book gives a full account of past experience, present structures and processes, and probable developments, of the voters- party-electoral systems nexus in twenty-one advanced Western democracies. A special focus is devoted to volatility, i.e. the growing instability of voting choices. This - it is argued - is the indicator of a wholesale crisis of the electors-parties trust relationship and the underlying cause of an unprecedented party fragmentation and a decreasing effectiveness of electoral rules. The analysis, descriptive, interpretative, and explanatory, is based on an original 1945-2007 comparative data set including all relevant political and institutional variables."--Jacket." ;
