The Political Ecology of the Metropolis: metropolitan sources of electoral behaviour in eleven countries


The Political Ecology of the Metropolis: metropolitan sources of electoral behaviour in eleven countries. Edited by: Sellers, Jefferey M; Kübler, Daniel; Walter-Rogg, Melanie; Walks, R Alan (2013). Colchester: ECPR press.

Abstract

A growing majority of humanity lives in sprawling, interconnected urban regions. Diversified metropolitan geographies have replaced the centuries-old divide between urban and rural areas, and transformed the local sources of electoral politics. The resulting patterns of electoral support and participation have shifted axes of partisan competition to the right.
This volume undertakes the first international comparative analysis of metropolitan political behaviour. The results support a powerful new thesis to explain many recent shifts in political behaviour: the metropolitanisation of politics.
