Global Electioneering explores American-style political consulting and its spread to countries throughout the world, emphasizing the roles of communication and technology. Gerald Sussman challenges the common belief that American influence abroad is due strictly to the professionalization of politics and asserts that it is instead affected by economics, industry, and the organizational power of new communication technology.

About the Author:

Gerald Sussman is professor of politics and communication at Portland State University.

Review:

Sussman provides us with a compelling account of the way in which money and the professionalization of political campaigning has impoverished democracy. Drawing upon a wealth of evidence, he shows us how an army of political consultants, backed by big business, is turning democracy into a branch of corporate public relations. In so doing, he takes us beyond much of the discussion of 'spin,' to firmly link the process to the global spread of neo-liberalism. Read it and weep. (Justin Lewis, Cardiff University)

Global Electioneering provides welcome and fascinating insights into the political economy of campaigning. In doing so, it seeks to broaden and deepen our understanding by challenging the influential modernization thesis and acknowledging the corrosive impact the rise of neo-liberalism has had on democratic practices around the globe. (Dominic J. Wring, Loughborough University)

Finally, a book that peels back the curtain to show the corporate takeover of that public space we used to call grassroots democracy. Sussman's writing is historical, personal, and critical; [he] offers insight into the incorporation of political elections in America and how this mission creep is privatizing elections worldwide. (Nancy Snow, author of Propaganda, Inc. and Information War and co-editor of War, Media, and Propaganda)

An insightful exposé of the powerful interests that have hijacked the electoral process at home and abroad. Nicely written, richly informed, and commanding in its analysis. (Michael Parenti, author of The Face of Imperialism and God and His Demons)

We in the United States typically feel comfortable talking about our society as a democracy. Gerald Sussman's book reminds us that democracy is a remarkably elastic term. Should it be used to describe an ultra-professionalized, high-tech campaign system dominated by big money in which ordinary people are effectively sidelined? Sussman's research and clear argument remind us how much anti-democratic practice we've come to accept in our democracy. His book is an important wake-up call and a contribution to the planning for how to take back power from elites. (Robert Jensen, Director of the Senior Fellows Honors Program of the College of Communication, University of Texas at Austin)

Sussman delivers a stinging indictment of U.S.-style campaigning and electioneering and a warning on the dangers of exporting such practices to the global stage. (CHOICE)

Sussman's book is especially valuable because it demonstrates the global spread of the U.S. model of hyperindustrial electioneering, replacing the craft and local specificities of national election practices in Canada, UK, Europe, and Japan. Global Electioneering provides a clearly written and very well-documented analysis in the tradition of some of our best political communication research. The discussion of much-needed reforms that concludes the book will offer students if not a road map out of the abyss, at least suggestions to help them design their own map. (Canadian Journal of Communication)

Global Electioneering, a book rich in data and theoretical analysis of political communication methods, encourages us to think seriously on what a democracy worthy of its name requires and signifies, and whether these preconditions are fulfilled in today's political process. (Anastasia Deligiaouri, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece The Journal Of International Communication)
