"This long-awaited 'big publication' from the poltical participation study of 1984-1985, financed by the Economic and Social Research Council of Britain, will not disappoint most of its academic audience...All in all, students of political participation and democracy across the globe have a lot to learn from reading this book." Donley T. Studlar, source??? "So general a description does not do justice to the wealth of information and analysis that the authors provide." American Political Science Review "This book has many strengths that deserve to make it a standard work in the field. It tries to set out a coherent picture of what circumstances lead which people to participate, how, and with what results. In the process it tells us much about British politics and adds greatly to the study of political participation in general. This is an ambitious project and some shortcomings are inevitable; but the book's achievements far outweigh its shortcomings...All-in-all a very impressive piece of research..." Mark N. Franklin, British Politics Group Newsletter
