ⓘ Nuffield Election Studies
The Nuffield Election Studies are a series of scholarly works on British General Elections that have been published since 1945. The series take their name from Nuffield College, Oxford. R. B. McCallum, who was a fellow at Nuffield discussed the idea of a book capturing the upcoming election after the break-up of the wartime coalition. His colleagues suggested that he should undertake the matter as it was his idea, and so with the help of Alison Readman, a research assistant, they co-authored the first book. David Butler has written extensively in the series. The latest work is The British General Election of 2010 by Dennis Kavanagh and Philip Cowley, which is the first book in the series where neither of the principal authors is based at Nuffield.
