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. [1] David Butler has written extensively in the series. The latest work is 'The British General Election of 2010' by Dennis Kavanagh and Philip Cowley,[2] which is the first book in the series where neither of the principal authors is based at Nuffield.[3]
