Elections have always been an integral part of post-independence African politics and have assumed utmost importance in the course of recent democratisation processes. However, comparative research on the political development in Africa lacks reliable electoral data. Elections in Africa fills this cap. The handbook is the only reliable source for African elections from independence to present. In the first volume of this series, Elections in Africa presents a country-by-country study of African nations that provides a comparative introduction on elections and electoral systems. Each country chapter examines the history of the institutional and electoral arrangements, the evolution of suffrage and current electoral provisions. Precise and exhaustive data on national elections and referendums are presented comparatively. The book provides a definitive and comprehensive set of data on elections and electoral systems in order to facilitate comparative research. Data is presented in a systematic manner allowing for both historical and cross-national comparisons.

Industry Reviews

`the data is presented in a systematic and easy to understand fashion. This is hardly a book that will be read from cover to cover, but like a Yellow Pages for political scientists - a truly useful reference guide and handbook' Rita Abrahamsen, Political Studies Vol 49, No 2, June 2001 `this handbook is a timely and valuable resource' Rita Abrahamsen, Political Studies Vol 49, No 2, June 2001 `This analytical database belongs in every academic reference collection.' M.E. Doro, Choice, Vol.37, No.11/12. `Produced by experienced and prolific editors at the University of Heidelberg, this handbook on elections in Africa offers excellent analysis of electoral statistics and behaviour, which are invaluable for Africanists as well as researchers in comparative politics.' M.E. Doro, Choice, Vol.37, No.11/12.
