            Cosmopolitan elites across the globe are ignoring the will of the people--pushing disgruntled voters into the arms of national-populist parties and politicians. The election of Donald Trump in America and the referendum on European Union membership in the United Kingdom, otherwis...e known as Brexit, sent shockwaves throughout the world. Cosmopolitan elites across the globe never saw this populist uprising coming and still do not understand it. People across the globe have been increasingly voting for national-populist politicians over the last twenty years. The current nationalist-populist revolt started long before Donald Trump came down his golden escalator, and even before Prime Minister David Cameron agreed to hold a referendum vote on the EU. It wasn't isolated to rundown towns in Northern England or the Midwest, and it wasn't solely because of demographic changes, ignorance, intolerance, or a whitelash. It was occurring because the elites chose to ignore voters' concerns when it came to globalism and neoliberalism. Issues like mass immigration, war, economic inequality, and national sovereignty were sacrosanct to neoliberals, and ultimately, their unwillingness to concede on these issues built discontent among millions of people.

            Citizen consumers have two voices in the public sphere: one constructed by consumer movements, the other by opinion polls and market research. The volume combines them, bringing together research areas so far treated in isolation: the politics of consumption and consumer organiza...tions, and the techniques of market research and opinion polling.

            This book examines the domestic electoral consequences of the economic and financial crisis in Europe, particularly in those countries where the crisis manifested itself more devastatingly: the Southern European countries of Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, as well as Iceland ...and Ireland. On the surface, the electoral consequences of the crisis seem largely similar, having resulted, in these countries, in large electoral losses for incumbents, as the most elementary versions of economic voting theory would have us expect. However, behind this fundamental similarity, important differences emerge. Whilst in some cases, on the basis of post-election surveys, it is possible to see that the crisis elections followed a previous pattern of performance-oriented voters, with no major changes either in known predictors of electoral choices or in basic party system properties, other elections brought the emergence of new parties, new issues and cleavages, altering patterns of political competition. By examining these different outcomes by comparing the crisis elections with previous ones, this book takes into account their timing relative to different stages of crisis. It also scrutinises party strategies and campaign dynamics, particularly as governments attempted (and sometimes succeeded) in framing events and proposals so as to apportion responsibility for economic outcomes. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Elections, Public Opinion and Parties.

            Electoral behaviour is one of the most dynamic areas of study in the field of comparative politics today, and, indeed represents one of the largest fields of political behavior research. This book looks to set the study of voting behaviour in its wider context, i.e. to understand... that the actions and behaviour of the individual (non)voter are conditioned by the wider environment in which the election is occurring. Separated into four parts, this study looks at: Identity and the Act of Voting; which examines cross-national data to assess the multi-level nature of identities across an integrating Europe, seeking in particular to understand what may drive a growing sense of Europeanness. Institutions; or how old and somewhat artificial divides between behaviouralism and institutionalism have started to break down as an increasing number of behaviouralists devote more attention to the interplay between institutions and electoral behaviour The locale; eexamining how party actors, and others, cajole, encourage, enthuse voters to the polling booth and why people participate in politics. Finally, in Part 4 the book arrives at the moment of voting the act of voting. Blais use US survey data to assess the relative merits of three sets of alternative indicators of electoral turnout intention to vote, reported vote and validated vote their findings tending to support the recent predilection for pre-election vote intention in turnout studies in preference to the other two measures.

            Unlike many studies of social attitudes, which are based on large scale quantitative surveys, or which focus on the attitude of elites, this book considers the views of ordinary people, and is based on in-depth, qualitative interviews. This approach results in rich, nuanced data,... and is especially helpful for highlighting ambivalent attitudes, where respondents may hold positive and negative views on a particular topic, views which are liable to change. The book examines attitudes on a range of subjects of current importance, including views on nationalism and internationalism, housing preferences, and educational ambitions. Throughout, the book explores how far attitudes are influenced by traditional Chinese values or by the neo-liberal outlook fostered by recent reforms, and concludes that materialism and individualism have increased.

            Strategic Narratives, Public Opinion and War: Winning domestic support for the Afghan War (Hardback)

            This volume addresses the fundamental question of winning and sustaining public support for the use of force abroad in protracted military missions, focusing on the war in Afghanistan. How do governments shape their societies for war? Levels of public support and its relationship... with military troop deployment to conflict areas has been researched thoroughly, and this work asks how public support for the deployment of military troops to Afghanistan in Europe, Canada, the US and Australia can be explained, and how this support correlated with the strategic narrative as constructed and formulated by national policymakers. It has been argued extensively that public support is shaped by the cohesion and content of the strategic narratives employed by national policy-makers. The point of departure of this volume is that public attitudes towards military deployment during conflicts without vital national interests directly at stake, are greatly shaped by the cohesiveness and content of the strategic narratives employed by national policy-makers when rationalising a given mission. The communication of strategic narratives is important because they tell the story of why a state is in conflict, why it is of such importance, and what success will look like. The main research question here is whether the different countries were each able to craft a successful strategic narrative, and it addresses the following questions: How did the different governments craft their narratives to convince their inhabitants to support the mission? What role did strategic narratives play at all in the political decision making? How did the strategic narratives develop during the course of the conflict? How did they positively or negatively influence media coverage and public opinion about troop contribution? And vice versa, in what way were the strategic narratives affected by the media and public discourse? In what way did the narratives interplay with external factors, such as elections, poli
