Description of Steal This Vote: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History...
We are happy to present the brilliant Steal This Vote: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in America.
With so many on offer these days, it is great to have a brand you can recognise. The Steal This Vote: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in America is certainly that and will be a great acquisition.
For this reduced price, the Steal This Vote: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in America is highly recommended and is always a regular choice with lots of people. Nation Books have included some nice touches and this equals good value.
The 2000 presidential election meltdown and the more recent controversy about computer voting machines did not come out of the blue. Steal This Vote tells the fraught but very colorful history of electoral malfeasance in the United States. It is a tale of votes bought, stolen, suppressed, lost, cast more than once, assigned to dead people and pets, miscounted, thrown into rivers, and litigated all the way to the Supreme Court. (No wonder America has the lowest voter participation rate of any Western democracy!) Andrew Gumbel—whose work on the new electronic voting fraud has been praised by Gore Vidal and Paul Krugman, and has won a Project Censored Award—shows that, for all the idealism about American democracy, free and fair elections have been the exception, not the rule. In fact, Gumbel suggests that Tammany Hall, shrouded as it is in moral odium, might have been a fairer system than we have today, because ostensibly positive developments like the secret ballot have been used to squash voting rights ever since.
In his latest book, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Autographed copies are now available, as well as a Truthdig Original DVD of a book talk by Chris Hedges.
