Hallo Travis,

in case you happen to speak German, I strongly recommend the books of 
Dieter Nohlen on the subject; the mathematical aspects are neither 
treated too strong or too well, but the interaction of electoral 
system, party system and other components of the political system are 
being investigated into quite deeply.

Personally, as we currently do have some disputes again in Austria 
about a change to an electoral system manufacturing majorities, I am 
deeply committed to exact proportional represenatation 
(Hare-Niemeyer) without any tresholds (as used in the election for 
the election of the Volkskammer 1990 in the GDR).

Grtnx, Stefan
