About the Authors
  • Recruitment to legislative office is one of the core functions of political systems, yet we know little about how the process varies from one country to another. Passages to Power provides a comparative account of legislative recruitment that applies a common analytical framework and new survey data to nineteen advanced democracies. Who succeeds in becoming a politician? Who fails? And why? This important new study brings together an outstanding group of international scholars to look at recruitment around the world.

    • Covers a wide range of democratic systems including US, Japan, Britain, Germany, Australia, Canada, Finland, New Zealand
    • Based on new and original survey data, and uses influential 'new institutionalist' approach
    • International team of outstanding scholars
