3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing...., 31 May 2008

This review is from: The British General Election of 2005 (Paperback)
I have read the Butler/Kavanagh books on successive British General Elections for many years, and own the collection from 1983 to date. This book - David Butler's last - is a little disappointing measured by the hugely high standards of the rest of the series. Maybe it was just one book too many - all the previous books clock in at 350 - 380 pages, but this one has just 275 pages and the treatment of the election therefore comes across as just a little more superficial. A good example concerns the treatment of the parties in the years since the previous General Election of 2001 - this seems really thin in comparison to the previous books which have devoted far more space to the telling of this story. I wonder if we will see another in this series; if so some re-energising will need to take place.
