krajske_volby08.gifThe publishing house CDK has issued its tenth volume in the ISPO series, Krajské volby 2008 (The 2008 regional election), written by Otto Eibl, Vlastimil Havlík, Jakub Kyloušek and Michal Pink. The book aims to bring the most comprehensive overview possible of the recent election of the regional assemblies in the Czech Republic. Individual chapters focus on the electoral campaign, the electoral gains of political parties and coalitions, and contextualise these gains in the perspective of the election of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament; they also reflect the post-election negotiations and the formation of the individual regional councils. The goal of the book is to provide a detailed interpretation of the 2008 regional election results using both proven and innovative approaches of the political sciences.
