New book analyses Northern Ireland elections

By Kevin Scott

Author Alan Parkinson pictured in Belfast with his new book Election Fever which gives an overview of elections in Northern Ireland since the early twentieth century, mainly focusing on eight contests, outlining their political context and the ways in which the elections were reported in the Belfast press.

The contrasting coverage of the Belfast Telegraph and the Irish News - their editorial comments, choice of stories and reports on speeches by a host of fascinating political personalities - is an important element of the book.
