About the book


This timely book provides a comprehensive, multi-dimensional and comparative analysis of political uncertainty. It is innovative in introducing the notions of inter-institutional, verbally induced, and historical uncertainty. It argues for an inclusive approach which considers multiple aspects of uncertainty, even when they are of a different nature. Combining aggregate statistical analysis and qualitative case studies, it compares political uncertainty in established and non-consolidated democracies. Overall, this book furnishes important insights into uncertainty in political life and how the discipline of political science is coming to terms with it.
