“One of the reasons I like Wayne’s book as a supplement is that I always have students do class debates on reforms to the electoral system, and this book fit in well with that because not only does it speak directly to critical thinking about the system, it also has suggestions about debate topics. Wayne does a good job of writing succinctly and clearly. His framing of everything as a controversy or question, helps students focus on what the big issues are, and the concluding ‘now it’s your turn’ elements help provoke critical thinking.”
“I think Is This Any Way to Run a Democratic Election? is an accessible book and can be taught on many levels, which is key. You can use this book in an introductory or upper-division course. I think the book is extremely well written and really great for many levels of pedagogy.”
