Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1999 - 341 pages
This book provides the first book-length study in English of voting behaviour in Pakistan. The study begins by outlining Pakistan's electoral history, and then proceeds to analyse voting behaviour in Pakistan's most populous and politicaly powerful province: the Punjab. The book agrues 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.
