Product description

Review

'Coleman shows that voting is laden with meaning and emotion, or at least it should be. Building an empirical-cum-theoretical argument for voting as 'social performance', [he] lays down a forceful, deeply innovative challenge to conventional wisdom in contemporary political studies.' Jeffrey C. Alexander, Lillian Chavenson Saden Professor of Sociology, Yale University

'In this eloquent, original, and deeply thoughtful book, Stephen Coleman breaks open the black box of the voting process to uncover a paradoxical aspect of democratic experience that nonetheless remains at the heart of democracy's transformative potential. Drawing on a wide range of literatures and Coleman's own striking empirical data, this is a provocative and important book.' Nick Couldry, Goldsmiths, University of London

'In this groundbreaking analysis of the emotional and affective experiences of voting, Stephen Coleman makes visible a whole dimension of democracy and citizenship that hitherto has been lingering in the shadows. His rich analysis of the complicated tensions between citizens and their elected officials challenges conventional wisdom within both academia and the political realm. Coleman's scholarship is outstanding, his style engaging and accessible.' Peter Dahlgren, Lund University

'Psephology, the study of elections and voters by numbers, is a notoriously bone-dry art. Stephen Coleman shows why. He brings democracy to the study of democracy by spotlighting the vital importance of grasping how and why citizens feel things about voting. Thoughtful, wonderfully imaginative, and positively constructive, this is a beautifully written masterpiece by a foremost world scholar in the flourishing field of political communications.' John Keane, University of Sydney

'… if it's elections without stats you're after, this is your book.' Chris Game, Local Government Studies

Book Description
