Much of the literature on voting predicts that they do, but this book argues that fully rational voters will not, in fact, consistently vote for the political outcomes they prefer. The authors critique the dominant interest-based theory of voting and offer a competing theory, which they term an expressive theory of electoral politics.

This theory is shown to be more coherent and more consistent with actually observed voting behavior. This important book offers a compelling challenge to the central premises of the prevailing theories of voting behavior.
