Review of “Power and the Vote: Elections and Electricity in the Developing World” (CUP, 2015)

The Journal of Politics

Vol. 78 no. 4 pp. E38-E39 (2016)

Abstract: Electricity is the bloodstream of modern economic life, and most of us take it for granted that we can rely on a steady supply. Yet, 1.3 billion people live without electricity. Brian Min’s new book provides important new insights into why this is so and, in the process, takes empirical work on distributive politics to new heights.
