Abstract

Analyses the 1983 General Election results to demonstrate the importance of a geographical approach to the study of English voting behaviour. A background review of explanations of British voting in terms of class and other factors preceeds an account of votes and seats won in 1983, stressing the geographical variation shown within national trends. Subsequent analytical chapters model the pattern of the 1983 vote, and changes from 1979, with explanatory variables relating to class, environment, and campaign characteristics particularly explored. A final chapter summarises the results and the reasons for them.T.Hoare
