Often regarded as a phenomenon of earlier times and backward places, vote buying has made an impressive comeback in recent decades - primarily as a by-product of democratization. ""Elections for Sale"" offers the first comprehensive analysis of this widespread but ill-understood practice. The authors systematically explore a series of key questions: What exactly is vote buying? What are its underlying causes? Why does it occur in some places, but not in others? How does it affect political and economic development? Can it be educated or legislated away? Their work presents new theoretical insights, as well as fresh empirical evidence from Asia and Latin America. The first comprehensive, systematic analysis of the widespread but ill-understood practice of vote buying.

About the Author:

Frederic Charles Schaffer is lecturer on social studies at Harvard University and research associate of the Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is author of Democracy in Translation: Understanding Politics in an Unfamiliar Culture.

Review:

"A brilliant message on the moral, democratic, and economic issues of vote buying. But beyond this core message, the chapters present convincing evidence of why and how vote buying is not normal, and why it is undemocratic and inefficient. The book presents specific studies around the globe, and this is one strength of the material - it offers universal, though differently rich, cases. This is a welcome and timely publication." - Edna E. A. Co, co-author of Philippine Democracy Assessment: Minimizing Corruption"
