"Volume includes enough experimental research to make readers think twice about a decision to move to a multiparty state. ... book has much to teach readers who hope to preserve their self-interest by contemplating a move from a dual-party system to a multi-party system. Contributors to Voting Experiments have defined most of their theoretical concepts clearly enough for readers who are not familiar with the disciplinary language found in political science and economics to be able to follow their arguments." (Theresa A. Thorkildsen, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (11), March, 2017)
