Who Enters Politics and Why?

Policy Press

The scale and ambition of this book require considerable preface in terms of empirical, methodological and conceptual clarity. Therefore, this opening chapter is used to (a) highlight the premium that has been placed on politicians’ personalities by popular as well as academic press (thus clarifying the broader fillip for this book, the three ‘problems’ highlighted above, as well as its public appeal), (b) introduce basic human values as the measure of personality chosen for this study from within a broader literature on personality and politics, (c) clarify the data and empirics underpinning the content of subsequent chapters, and (d) outline the contribution of each chapter in the rest of this book.

Keywords:   Anti-politics, Basic Human Values, Personality, Data and Methods
