Editorial Reviews

Review

“Excellent.”—Richard Cockett, Literary Review

“Democracy is in a worldwide recession dating back at least a decade, as unscrupulous and powerful people successfully abuse every part of the electoral process. That is the depressing message of this lively book. . . [Cheesman and Klaas’s] chirpy tone belies the thorough research and bleak message.”—Edward Lucas, The Times

“The book is full of remarkable stories from actual elections and some of them remain lodged in my mind. . . .  It was so clearly written that you feel like you have read a collection of short stories with a potential to speak to a broad readership.”—Ivan Jarabinksky, Swiss Political Science Review

"Clear, punchy, and potentially revolutionary, How to Rig an Election should be read by every voter, civil society activist, opposition politician, election monitor,  journalist and diplomat who has ever come away from a voting booth or tallying  centre feeling angry, worried or frustrated."—Michela Wrong, author of It's Our Turn to Eat

"Cheeseman and Klaas hit the nail on the head: in many countries elections are a sham. The problem is getting worse, while the international community connives at being deceived. The implications for public policy are profound and will take years to digest. An excellent book.”—Sir Paul Collier, author of Wars, Guns and Votes

“A concise, penetrating examination of why and how a growing number of governments are rigging elections, brimming with telling examples and practical recommendations for how concerned international actors can do more to help reverse this disturbing global trend.”—Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

"Rigging elections has become an art to which the most impressive array of resources are brought to bear even in the poorest countries. This work is a most timely addition to all who care about this important piece in the great democratic jigsaw on which so many basic freedoms depend."—John Githongo

“A timely wake-up call to the greatest political paradox of our time. Although more elections are being held than ever before, we are witnessing a worldwide undermining of democracy and democratic processes. This book reveals how elections are being rigged, why it matters and what we can do about it. A must read for anyone fighting for democratic governance and for the voices of citizens and ordinary people.”—Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director, Oxfam International
