Reviews of the first edition
"David Farrell concisely describes---and dramatically illustrates with sample ballot papers--the variety of electoral systems across the world. His book will be an eye-opener for those unaware of the implications of alternative methods of voting. Students everywhere will learn much--about their own as well as other systems--from reading this book."--Kenneth Janada, Northwestern University
"Farrell's skilful work of synthesis is the best available text on electoral systems."--Adrian Blau, Political Studies Review
"By far the best book on the subject."--Reuven Hazan, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem
