While frustration with various aspects of American democracy abound in the United States, there is little agreement over-or even understanding of-what kinds of changes would make the system more effective and increase political participation. Matthew J. Streb sheds much-needed light. On the whole, Rethinking US Election Law is a timely, well-written argument in favour of electoral reform in the United States.

    In “Rethinking U.S. Election Law’s” 10 concise chapters, Mulroy unpacks the electoral systems of the United States, laying bare their shortcomings and proposing some imminently sensible reforms to bring our elections back in line with those basic democratic assumptions. In Rethinking American Electoral Democracy, Matthew J. Streb, a political scientist at Northern Illinois University, joins the debate more or less on the side of the democracy perfectionists. The book is a great and easy read. It moves through a lot of material without being burdensome. Some of the ar-guments are quite provocative. The book.
