Do Political Campaigns Matter? Campaign Effects in Elections and Referendums

By David M. Farrell; Rudiger Schmitt-Beck | Go to book overview

Preface and acknowledgements

There are occasions when it is evident that a theme is ripe for more scholarly attention. Perhaps the echo of our call for papers for a workshop on the political consequences of modern electioneering, held in Copenhagen in 2000 under the auspices of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR), is just such an indication. This stimulated more than forty proposals-twice as many as we could accommodate in the workshop. In their turn, the number of papers presented at the workshop were twice as many as we could eventually include in this volume, given the space limitations and the need to provide a reasonable balance of coverage in terms of themes and countries. Difficult choices had to be made about which papers to include, but we want to stress at the outset that this volume has resulted from a group effort, and therefore we should record our thanks to those workshop participants not included in this volume whose presentations and comments helped to stimulate so much of what is included. These were: Kees Aarts, Wolfram Brunner, Rachel Gibson, Christina Holtz-Bacha, Hanne Marthe Narud, Henar Criado Olmos, Geoffrey K. Roberts, Patrick Seyd, Henry Valen, Philip van Praag, Paul Whiteley and Michael Wolf.

We also wish to express our thanks to the chapter authors who put up with our requests (sometimes several) for revisions and redrafting. That this volume was completed on time is testimony to their speed, efficiency and good humour throughout. We are grateful to the series editor, Jan van Deth, to our referees and also to Shaun Bowler and Barbara Pfetsch for their helpful and constructive comments, and to our Routledge editors, Craig Fowlie, Heidi Bagtazo and Belinda Dearbergh, for their guidance and support throughout. Thanks also to Oxford University Press for allowing us to reprint Table 1.1, originally published in R. Dalton and M.P. Wattenberg, Parties without Partisans, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2000.

Tanja Pagel (ZUMA) was invaluable in helping us to prepare the manuscript for publication and we wish to record our particular gratitude to her for this. Thanks are also due to the Centre for Survey Research and Methodology (ZUMA) at Mannheim, which hosted David Farrell for a visit in summer 2001, enabling us to take big steps towards completing the final editing during a week of intense work.
