"Jason Brennan's surprising investigation of the ethics of voting grapples with some of the most entrenched dogmas in our political culture. His approach is open-minded, his writing crystal clear, and his argumentation of a high standard. His conclusions will shake some readers up, and our thinking about democracy will be better for the debates that are sure to ensue."--David Estlund, Brown University
"This is a fascinating book about a very important topic. Indeed, it is difficult to think of a topic more significant in democratic theory--and it is surprising that, until now, it has been so neglected. The Ethics of Voting abounds in interesting claims and good arguments with often surprising conclusions. Beautifully clear and eminently readable, it will be noticed."--Geoffrey Brennan, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"Brennan's book is provocative in the best sense of the word--a fresh and challenging approach to important matters in political theory and political ethics. It is also a remarkably accessible book that manages to capture nuances and subtleties without unnecessary complication or jargon. In these respects, The Ethics of Voting is a model of how political philosophy should proceed."--Richard Dagger, University of Richmond--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
