This introductory chapter discusses this book's approach to the task of providing a cross‐national analysis of elections in Asia and the Pacific. The aim is to offer a systematic comparison of elections and electoral systems. The book does not draw a simplistic general picture of the whole continent, nor does it provide detailed explanations for all historical peculiarities of the relevant electoral provisions and their consequences. Rather, it follows a middle‐range approach to highlight the similarities and differences between regional and national contexts that have most clearly influenced the relevant structure of electoral provisions and electoral results.

Keywords:   elections, Asia, Pacific, electoral system, electoral provisions, regional context, national context, electoral results
