Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tyranny of the Minority addresses fundamental questions about democracy with a careful and methodologically sophisticated approach. I found the argument of this book to be creative and persuasive. It should have a lasting impact on the literature on representation." --Vincent Hutchings, University of Michigan

"The power of some minority groups to continually fend off majority interests through democratic representation has long been under-theorized. Bishin's fascinating and empirically sophisticated account of subconstituency politics is a welcome remedy, and it is absolutely vital for any understanding of American democracy." --Paul Frymer, Princeton University

Book Description

Why do special interests defeat the people's will in American politics?"

The book itself brought some interesting content to it. the political theories and aspects were well developed and enthralling. Although diction the author used seemed to imply he was "trying to hard" to use elaborate words.
