The 10 essays in this volume analyze the existence, extent, and conditions in which voters reason strategically and engage in strategic voting in various institutional settings and elections in the UK, Belgium, Canada, Japan, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland. Political science and economics scholars from North America, Europe, and Israel discuss a conceptual framework for thinking about voting and its strategic and sincere forms, then provide analysis of strategic behavior in specific institutional contexts, looking at aspects like the effect of national and constituency expectations on strategic voting, support for minority governments, information on party strength, and candidate quality, and the incidence of strategic behavior.
