Praise

“A refreshing book. . . . Exceedingly thorough. . . . Patterson puts forth a cogent, well-documented case.” –The New York Times

“A wise and skeptical account of the contemporary electorate.” –The Washington Post Book World

“Engaging. . . . Provocative . . . required reading for the public-policy—minded.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Thought-provoking.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A multifaceted treatment of a continuing public problem. . . . Readable and important.” –Greensboro News & Record

“Valuable. . . . Patterson’s clearly written book offers a menu of sound . . . measures to help solve these problems.” –Columbia Journalism Review

“Well-reasoned. . . . Offering pragmatic reforms, Patterson’s descriptions and prescriptions merit mulling by politically minded readers.” –Booklist

“Patterson’s book . . . isn’t just another tired lament about the lameness of the political process. It’s an extension of the Vanishing Voter Project, designed to discover ‘what draws people to a campaign and what keeps them away.’ ” –The Washington Monthly

“Outstanding. . . . A well-documented project that leads the reader through what works and what fails in our system, and how we can continue our representative republic and make it more responsive to the wishes of the electorate in the future.” –The Decatur Daily
