Lundberg, Thomas Carl, 1967- Proportional representation and the constituency role in Britain / Thomas Carl Lundberg. -- New York : Palgrave Macmillan, c2007. -- Obsah: Introduction: More Pluralism in Representation--Proportional Representation and Constituency Representation--Representative Roles and Electoral Incentives--Evidence for the Electoral Incentive--List Representatives and their Constituencies--Competition between Constituency and List Representatives--Conclusion: Coming to Terms with Pluralism. -- Anotace: "Thomas Lundberg critically examines the claim that party list-elected members of Britain's devolved assemblies are somehow 'second-class' representatives. The Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly are elected by the controversial mixed-member proportional (MMP) system. Empirical evidence compares British representatives to their MMP-elected counterparts in Germany and in New Zealand. Although list-elected representatives in Britain do appear to have a different constituency role, these representatives add an important element of pluralism to Britain's majoritarian politics."--Cover. -- ISBN : 978-0-230-00652-2 váz.
