A New Species of Electoral Institution? Relative Causal Inference and the Study of Mixed Electoral Systems
Elections are the key to understanding politics in democratic societies. They bestow the power to make decisions about peace and war, wealth and poverty, and the laws that govern society. This book directly addresses how mixed electoral systems—a novel and increasingly important species of electoral institutions—affect the behavior of parties, voters, candidates, and legislators. It fits into a rich genealogy of scholarly research that stretches across generations.
