Consolidating Democracy: South Africa's Second Popular Election
In this timely and provocative book, Lodge, one of South Africa's leading political analysts, examines the context in which the election on June 2, 1999 was held, describes the electoral system, profiles the South African voter, and analyses the campaigns of the participating parties. Lodge assesses the results of the poll and, in his conclusion, debates the extent to which the conduct of the election fulfills democratic criteria and advances the development of democratic institutions and values in South Africa. The book is illustrated with evocative photographs.
