'An invaluable and lively collection of essays on South Africa's electoral politics by the leading authorities in the field. Essential reading for all those interested in the 'New' South Africa.' - Anthony Butler, Associate Professor, University of Cape Town, South Africa
'Electoral Politics in South Africa is an excellent guide to the highs and lows of South Africa's first decade of democracy. Piombo and Nijzink have assembled an outstanding cast of writers whose essays illuminate not just the 2004 election but highlight how the nation has grappled with the transition from apartheid to multi-party democracy. The book makes essential reading for anyone wishing to understand where South African democracy is heading.' - Andrew Reynolds, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA, and Editor of Election '94 South Africa and Election '99 South Africa
'...this is a worthwhile book, with two excellent introductory chapters and much useful information, especially on the smaller parties...' - The Round Table
'As South Africa moves towards its next democratic election, it is important to understand the electoral trends that have emerged in the past decade. Electoral Politics in South Africa makes a valuable contribution to the body of work that contributes to that understanding.' - Focus
