About this product
- DescriptionThe first book-length comparative analysis of voting behaviour in the five Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Leading scholars of the national teams of election studies presents a detailed account of voter turut, party identification, satisfaction with democracy, preferential voting, government support and party choice in the Nordic countries. The five-nation study is based on a comparative data set prepared uniquely for this book project that allows for a comprehensive analysis of the diversity in voting behaviour within the Nordic countries as well as the discrepancies between Nordic and n-Nordic countries. The book challenges a widespread practice to group the Nordic countries together in comparative analyses. The general claim, substantiated by a unique and extensive empirical analysis of voter behaviour, is that the dissimilarities between the Nordic countries are in fact so large - both in terms of institutional settings and micro-level voting behaviour - that it is t justified to make general claims of a Nordic voter.In other words, the old story of 'remarkable similarities' will be substituted with numerous examples of 'remarkable dissimilarities' between the Nordic countries.
