This book examines candidate selection in nine liberal democracies -- Belgium, Britain, France, West Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and Norway. It describes the methods by which parties select their candidates; analyses the factors which influence the form of selection used; and considers the consequences of candidate selection. The book concludes with an overall assessment of the role of candidate selection in the political process. It questions whether proportional representation necessarily entails centralized candidate selection; whether parties of the Left tend to be more centralized than parties of the Right; and whether different types of candidate selection have distinct consequences for the behaviour of deputies.
