Money And Votes Routledge Library Editions Political Geography from the Author: R. J. Johnston. Is the election result in a constituency affected by the amount of campaign spending there? This book, originally published in 1987 was the first major study of this important question. Based on extensive original research, it addresses two main issues: the impact of constituency campaign spending on election results in Britain: and the question of how that impact changes with the level of spending. The author develops a framework for analysing spending and its impact based upon American analyses of campaign expenditures, and focusses on general election results from 1950-83. Consideration is also given to minor parties and to both local and European elections.

Money And Electoral Politics from the Author: Ron Johnston. In Money and Electoral Politics, Ron Johnston and Charles Pattie draw on the latest research--including much unpublished material--to explore the financial differences between the United Kingdom’s three main political parties in the four years leading up to the 2010 General Election. They look at how much local party branches raised and at the profound influence financing had on candidate performance. They show that fundraising at local levels often fell significantly short, suggesting a major problem with state of grassroots organizing--the capacity to effectively engage voters is confined to a relatively small number of constituencies. The result is an important contribution to the continuing debates on campaign finance, both in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

Public Libraries Public Policies And Political Processes from the Author: Paul T. Jaeger. Drawing on two decades of original research conducted by the authors, as well as existing research about the intersection of public policy, political discourse, and public libraries, this book seeks to understand the origins and implications of the current standing of public libraries in public policy and political discourse. It both explains the complex current circumstances and offers strategies for effectively creating a better future for public libraries. The main message is that there is a pressing need for public librarians and other supporters of public libraries to be: Aware of the political process and its implications for libraries; Attuned to the interrelationships between policy and politics; and Engaged in the policy process to articulate the need for policies that support public libraries. The style is both scholarly and accessible to general readers, with the goal of being useful to students, educators, researchers, practitioners, and friends of public libraries in library and information science. It will also be usefull for those engaged in areas of public policy, government, economics, and political science who are interested in the relationships between public libraries, public policy, and political processes. Building upon the discussion of the key issues, the book offers proposals for professional, policy-making, and political strategies that can strengthen the public library and its ability to meet the needs of individuals and communities. The discussion and analysis in the book draw upon data and real world examples from the many studies that the authors have conducted on related topics, including libraries’ outreach to increasingly diverse service populations and efforts to meet community needs through innovative partnerships. As the intersection of politics, policy, and libraries has grown in importance and complexity in recent years, the need for a book on their interrelationships is long overdue.
