At the risk of turning this site into Amazon.com, a plug is in order for Crikey’s multi-media election blitz. Readers are invited to inspect my own contribution to the project at the Crikey website: 33 sets of marginal seat maps displaying booth-level two-party and swing results from 2004, as previewed earlier on this siteâ€™s long-lost Seat of the Week series (to be reactivated any day now, I swear). Next week sees the Crikey Guide to the 2007 Federal Election hit the bookstores, courtesy of the good people at Penguin Books. Edited by Christian Kerr, the book promises to lift the lid on the political issues set to dominate the election while explaining the significance of polling, campaign styles, new media, the press gallery, lobbyists and more, featuring contributions from political luminaries including Malcolm Fraser, Fred Chaney, Barnaby Joyce and more. And more includes Peter Brent of Mumble, who offers a chapter on opinion polls (and Andrew Denton, who writes the foreword). All this for the low low price of $19.95.
