Interesting Perspectives on Politics Issue

Paul Gronke writes: “The most recent issue of Perspectives on Politics is a theme issue about the role of elections and other democratic institutions in non-democratic nations (authoritarian and autocratic regimes). The issue has very rich content, including original research articles, “controversy” pieces, and a large number of book reviews broadly on the topic of elections, from an American, comparative, and normative perspective. The website link is gated but the table of contents is open access, and anyone at an academic institution should be able to access the content.”
