About this title


This volume shows how Afghan elections since 2004 have threatened to derail the country's fledgling democracy. Examining presidential, parliamentary, and provincial council elections and conducting interviews with more than one hundred candidates, officials, community leaders, and voters, the text shows how international approaches to Afghan elections have misunderstood the role of local actors, who have hijacked elections in their favor, alienated communities, undermined representative processes, and fueled insurgency, fostering a dangerous disillusionment among Afghan voters.

About the Author:

Noah Coburn is a political anthropologist at Bennington College in Vermont. He has conducted fieldwork in Afghanistan since 2005, focusing on political and economic life in Afghanistan, particularly on issues of violence, conflict, and local governance. His book, Bazaar Politics: Power and Pottery in an Afghan Market Town, was the first full-length ethnography of a Tajik community in Afghanistan. He received his doctorate from the Anthropology Department at Boston University.

Anna Larson is an academic researcher focusing on democratization, governance, and gender in fragile states. She worked in Afghanistan between 2004 and 2010, leading research programs in governance for the Kabul-based Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU). She has published widely on issues of democratization, political party development, elections, gender, and parliamentary dynamics. She completed her doctoral studies in postwar recovery at the University of York, UK.
