520    This book offers a unique exploration of the 2015 General 
       Election from the perspectives of those most intimately 
       involved as strategists, journalists and analysts. It 
       features contributions from the rival parties, news and 
       polling organizations as well as academic experts who 
       examine all aspects of the campaign. A common theme that 
       emerges is the increasing complexity of the democratic 
       process given the development of a more multifaceted party
       system and a growing fragmentation in mass media 
       audiences. The UK electoral landscape has changed: in 2015
       six parties received more than a million votes whereas in 
       the 2010 General Election it was only three. This book 
       provides invaluable insights into contemporary British 
       politics through analysis of an election whose outcome, an
       outright Conservative victory, surprised many 
       commentators. It will appeal to students and scholars in 
       the fields of electoral politics and media and 
       communication, as well as to practitioners and the wider 
       reader interested in British general elections
