Elections are the central mechanism in the democratic machine; everyone who has the responsibility of a vote should understand how they function. Yet an election can be very confusing, with speeches inspiring confidence for the future being pitted against recriminations for past actions or failures. Peter Lane enables the reader to understand our electoral system by choosing the most significant general elections of the past two hundred years and simply explaining what happened at them.
