Description
Palast, an investigative journalist and independent scholar of voter fraud, presents a light-hearted though serious survey of the various ways that the electoral system is suppressed or captured by wealth. The brief chapters touch on forms of voter fraud, postal sabotage, the financial backers of various attempts to suppress voter-turnout among key demographics, how money keeps us locked into a two-party duopoly, and gerrymandering. Throughout the book and in dedicated section in the middle, Ted Rall's political comics illustrate Palast's comments. Palast upholds the political value of voting and recommends several steps to protect the integrity of your vote. The lack of citations and casual presentation make this more of an introductory than scholarly text. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
