About the Author

Anthony M. Sayers teaches in the Department ofPolitical Science at the University of Calgary.


Sayers' insistence on the continued vitality and importance of local political forces is refreshingly counterorthodox ... The book is richly suggestive of hypotheses to guide further work in the area ... It reveals much of interest to students of elections, but he also deepens appreciation of the important role played by local party associations in the operation of Canada's system of representative democracy. As such, Sayers' work deserves a wide audience amongst students of Canadian elections and political parties. -- Munroe Eagles * Canadian Journal of Political Science *
... a welcome contribution to this growing literature ... this is a careful study of a heretofore neglected area of Canadian politics. It makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of Canadian parties as well expanding our appreciation of how elections work in Canada. -- Lynda Erickson * Australian Journal of Political Science, Vol. 35, No. 1 *
The strength of this study is a systematic theoretical approach to the development of testable hypotheses. Future studies of constituency-level politics will likely make use of the framework developed in this book. -- Eric P. Mintz * CBRA 4071 *
