Reviews

"In a region torn between mass uprisings and military repression, how and under what conditions do elections advance popular sovereignty? Further, how does recent voting in the Arab world compare with electoral competition in the non-Arab states of Turkey and Iran? Lucidly written, Elections and Democratization in the Middle East answers these questions and more. It provides a tour d'horizo n of the contemporary political landscape and will energize the debate over the power of elections to change regimes and transform societies." - Jason Brownlee, University of Texas at Austin, USA
