The Pakistani Voter, Electoral Politics and Voting Behaviour in the Punjab
Oxford University Press, 1999 - 341 pages
A study of voting behaviour in Pakistan. Beginning by outlining Pakistan's electoral history, it then proceeds to analyze voting behaviour in Pakistan's most populous and politicaly powerful province: the Punjab. The book argues that the main underlying determinant of voting behaviour in the Punjab is voter perception of which candidate and party will be the most effective at delivering patronage.
