George Farah argues persuasively that the presidential debates are organized almost entirely to serve the interests of the two major-party nominees and not the public interest. If you want a behind-the-scenes look at candidate negotiations, backstage maneuvering, and the machinations involved in dealing with major third-party candidates, No Debate is the book for you. NANCY M. NEUMAN, former president of the League of Women Voters
No Debate exposes how behind-the-scenes wheelin and dealin inside the Beltway wrecks our most valuable political forumsthe presidential debates turning them into cures for insomnia that prevent the American people from hearing about issues they want to hear about. JIM HIGHTOWER
At last, a full-scale, documented report on how the Commission on Presidential Debates rigs the process to prevent the public from hearing independent voices not connected with the Republican and Democratic parties. NAT HENTOFF
George Farah examines one of the biggest blasts of arrogance in the history of the United Statesthe collusion between the Republicans and Democrats to manipulate the public by manipulating the presidential debates. Every American citizen, regardless of party affiliation, should rise up against this un-American strategy. It's not just the White House thats at stake, but democracy itself. Read this book, get angry, and rise up. PHIL DONAHUE
Presidential debates are both a public function and an essential part of the electoral process. That process is now broken because of exclusionary rules dictated by private interests and narrow partisanship. George Farah has carefully researched and documented that charge. His prescription for reform would honor the principle of public interest and accountability by establishing a system which would provide fair and open debates. JOHN B. ANDERSON, former presidential candidate
