More about the book
About the book
This is the first systematic, book-length presentation of Danish political attitudes and voting behaviour. Based on a study of the country's 1994 election and interviews with 2,000 voters, the volume also draws on the results of previous elections and surveys of Danish political attitudes and voting choices during the past ten to twenty years.
The authors describe the origin and history of the Danish party system, before analysing the issue of declining class voting and the rise of a new "middle class"; issues of generational change and concerns about immigration and the environment.
