Daniele Caramani describes the transformation of politics from an environment where voting behavior differs greatly between regions to one where it is homogeneous within nations. Looking at long-term evolution, spanning the mid-nineteenth century to the present, Caramani utilizes data on specific constituencies rather than on a national level. He demonstrates that a nation-wide homogeneous dimension emerged from national and industrial revolutions and replaced preindustrial territorial dimensions. His analysis is constructed along the lines of party families and reveals why countries currently exhibit different levels of homogeneity.

Daniele Caramani is professor of political science (chair of comparative politics and methods) at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. He is the author of the book and CD-ROM Elections in Western Europe since 1815 (Palgrave, 2000) and The Nationalization of Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2004), for which he received the "Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Research in the Social Sciences." He has also edited Comparative Politics (Oxford University Press, 2008). His current research focuses on the integration of European electorates and party systems. A paper on "Is There a European Electorate and What Does It Look Like? Evidence from Electoral Volatility Measures, 1976-2004" has appeared in West European Politics (29/1, 2006) and has been awarded the "Vincent Wright Prize" for best article in 2006.
