Wahlkampf in Sachsen: Eine qualitative Längsschnittanalyse by Thomas Schubert

By Thomas Schubert

Die vergleichende examine der sächsischen Landtagswahlkämpfe von CDU, SPD und PDS im Zeitraum von 1990 bis 2004 bietet die bisher umfangreichste und gründlichste politikwissenschaftliche Untersuchung von Landtagswahlkämpfen in den ostdeutschen Bundesländern und darüber hinaus. Im Zentrum der Längsschnittstudie stehen Organisationsmuster, Strategien, Image-, Konkurrenz- und Themenorientierungen (unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des wirtschaftspolitischen Themenwahlkampfes) im sächsischen Parteienwettbewerb um Wählerstimmen. Das quellengesättigte Buch betrachtet die vier sächsischen Landtagswahlkämpfe, indem diese internal- wie interparteiliches Verhalten im hegemonialen Parteiensystem beschreiben und die politischen Findungsprozesse der Parteien seit der Wiedergründung des Freistaates ausdrücken, als Teil einer spezifischen landespolitischen Kultur, ohne den Blick auf allgemeine Charakteristika von Landtagswahlkämpfen zu versäumen.
