The book, Losing Political Office, is based on in-depth interviews conducted with British politicians and analyses the different impacts of leaving political office. Representative democracy depends on politicians exiting office, and yet while there is considerable interest in who stands for and gains office, there is curiously little discussed about this process. Jane Roberts seeks to address this gap.

Losing Political Office is published by Palgrave and is available to buy online.
