Despite all that scholars have learned about voting behavior, significant questions persist. Controversies in Voting Behavior brings together the best scholarship and organizes it around five important debates that drive research in the field. This new edition features fifteen new selections, with many of these containing new or updated evidence added by the authors just for this volume. Section introductions establish useful context while guiding readers through conflicting interpretations that emerge across the chapters and in the academic literature.

About the Author:

Richard G. Niemi is Don Alonzo Watson Professor of Political Science at the University of Rochester, where he has taught for forty-five years and has served as department chair, associate dean for graduate studies, and interim dean.

He has been a visiting professor at the University of Lund (Sweden) and at the University of Iowa.

He has an ongoing interest in the Native Americans of upstate New York and Wisconsin, from whom he can trace a portion of his ancestry.

Review:

The section introductions written by the editors are one of the best parts of the volume- to hear the editors react to the work, the puzzles, and place things in context is extremely valuable. This is the best attempt to put political science and politics together that I have seen in a book of this type. It makes political science relevant! --Lynn Vavreck, University of California-Los Angeles

Niemi, Weisberg, and Kimball have produced an outstanding volume. Controversies should be an essential part of any political behavior course. The comprehensive literature reviews and articles engage undergraduates and give them the necessary background to grapple with key issues in the literature. I use the literature reviews in graduate courses as the model students should follow. --Michael J. Hanmer, University of Maryland at College Park

Controversies in Voting Behavior is an ideal textbook for courses focused on voting behavior and elections. This text works beautifully in my electoral behavior course because it provides a comprehensive discussion of the most pressing issues within the field of voting behavior in one convenient volume. My students are able to access the material easily due to the text being organized nicely around several core debates which the authors summarize succinctly prior to the individual chapters which are authored by leaders in their respective research areas. I have used Controversies for several years and cannot wait to introduce my students to the new edition! --Gabriel Sanchez, University of New Mexico
