|VOTING FOR DEMOCRACY: A Study of Electoral Politics in Zimbabwe |
JONATHAN N. MOYO
1992, 244 pp., 0-908307-25-X
The author argues that the determination as to whether a country is democratic or not is ultimately settled by that country's electoral system. Using Zimbabwe's 1990 general and presidential elections as a case study, Professor Moyo analyses not only the institutional context of the electoral process but also the attitudes and profiles of the voters. He concludes that Zimbabwe's 1990 elections were, objectively speaking, neither free nor fair.
