This outstanding book expertly addresses the former gap in the literature, representing a profound advance in our understanding of the adoption and implementation of gender quotes throughout the globe...destined to become a mandatory reference in the thematic area of gender and representation...a must-read for all scholars concerned with the role of gender in politics. * Perspectives on Politics *
Krook's book is an excellent piece of scholarship with multiple contributions to the field of political science, a significant advancement of the study of quotas for women, and an agenda for future research. Her work raises interesting and important questions while also providing a common framework for comparative analysis. * Journal of Politics *
This is and will for some time be the definitive account of the political science of quotas for women. * Joni Lovenduski, Anniversary Professor of Politics, Birkbeck College, University of London, and Fellow of the British Academy *
In recent years, gender quotas for legislative office represent one of the critical reforms sweeping the world. Providing original theoretical insights and sifting through fresh case-study evidence, this study synthesizes the literature, carefully examines alternative reasons, and rejects over-simple monocausal explanations of this complex phenomenon. The book provides a major contribution to the fields of women and politics, comparative institutions, and public policy, of interest to scholars and policymakers alike. * Pippa Norris, McGuire Lecturer in Comparative Politics, Harvard University *
