Description

Electoral reform is currently an extremely significant political issue in many countries, yet there is little real understanding or systematic discussion of it. In this timely and accessible new book, Professor Dummett, one of the most distinguished scholars in the field, analyzes the main forms of electoral systems used in legislative systems around the world, and generates a set of criteria that help to explain how we should decide which system we should have.
