The Oxford Handbook of Electoral Persuasion

Edited by Elizabeth Suhay, Bernard Grofman, and Alexander H. Trechsel

Oxford Handbooks

  • Features nearly fifty chapters by world-renowned scholars in the field, both senior and junior, and an introductory chapter by the editors which offers a new theoretical framework organizing the study of electoral persuasion.
  • Surveys a rapidly growing but dispersed literature in political science and adjacent fields (communication and media studies, social psychology), and incorporates research on the U.S., Europe, and developing nations, especially in Latin America.
  • Reviews both theoretical and empirical work, with an emphasis on contemporary topics, such as: political polarization and bias (among individuals and in media); how electoral persuasion intersects with diverse publics; social networks; populism; money in elections; and cutting-edge methodologies.
