    Prof. Anderson is really one of the most lucid and timely voices in contemporary America. This is not some bumbling self-referential and epistemologically closed off to a broad audience academic tome. This, despite the fact that each argument is clear, factual, and well documented. Thi...

    Democrats tend to act as though the greatest harm that results from all the recent monkeying around with voter registration and election mechanics is that the Republican Party gains an unfair advantage. That's true, of course, as far as it goes. But what is often lost in the debate abo...

    This is the book every voter needs to read before the 2018 midterm elections. It's important to know the past so we can change the future. ONE PERSON, NO VOTE is horrifying in its explicit, thorough, and well-researched documentation of voter suppression from 1865 to the present. Highl...

    Well-researched and well-written, this book clearly outlines voter suppression in the US: its history and its status. It made me want to holler and wave it overhead to get everyone's attention. It's a quick read. Voter suppression is the most un-American, anti-democratic thing we do as...

    Carol Anderson rips the bandaid off the festering sore that is the American Electoral System in this well researched and troubling book. Through voter roll manipulation, gerrymandering, voter suppression, Jim Crow intimidation of voters and other tactics, white supremacists continue to...

    A jarring and important overview of the many ways that the right to vote has been suppressed, denied and tampered with for millions of citizens since the beginning of our democracy. Certainly significant as the 2018 midterms approach, but also in light incremental and accelerating roll...

    This is the first book that I've read by Carol Anderson (I keep meaning to start "White Rage," but I feel like I'll have to be in a certain book reading mood for that to make the most impact for me, so I'm saving it until I'm in that mood), and I'm impressed. The book is succinct - the...

    Overall I'm glad I read this book and I learned a lot from it. It was very well-researched and was a pretty quick read. I think it's an important book for anyone interested in why our political system is so messed up (which I think should be everyone, but that's just me!). Anderson...

    Anderson has long been an outspoken critic of voter ID laws, voter roll purges, and other practices she argues are disenfranchising primarily African American and other minority voters in America's biggest cities. I admit I was skeptical of Anderson's claims (and similar claims from ot...

    This is a strong, well-researched introduction to the issues of voter suppression and the systematic oppression of people of colour voting over the years. Anderson not only gives a detailed history of the way white governments have used prejudiced systems to prevent non white people vo...

    "Voting is neither an obstacle course not a privilege. It's a right." Anderson's book is a detailed look at at the insidious - and immoral - attempts to stop citizens from voting, in the wake of Obama's election. America is becoming increasingly black and Hispanic. Rather than reformin...

    Another important and necessary work from Carol Anderson, One Person, No Vote looks at the history of voter suppression in the US from reconstruction through Jim Crow and the civil rights era through to the more recent gutting of the civil rights act. She looks at the current rash of d...

    This is the first book that I've read by Carol Anderson (I keep meaning to start "White Rage," but I feel like I'll have to be in a certain book reading mood for that to make the most impact for me, so I'm saving it until I'm in that mood), and I'm impressed. The book is succinct - the...

    Overall I'm glad I read this book and I learned a lot from it. It was very well-researched and was a pretty quick read. I think it's an important book for anyone interested in why our political system is so messed up (which I think should be everyone, but that's just me!). Anderson...

    Anderson has long been an outspoken critic of voter ID laws, voter roll purges, and other practices she argues are disenfranchising primarily African American and other minority voters in America's biggest cities. I admit I was skeptical of Anderson's claims (and similar claims from ot...

    This is a strong, well-researched introduction to the issues of voter suppression and the systematic oppression of people of colour voting over the years. Anderson not only gives a detailed history of the way white governments have used prejudiced systems to prevent non white people vo...

    This is a terrifying look at racially motivated systematic voter suppression. The author not only provided the latest information but also a history of voter suppression. The book is meticulously researched and well written. Anderson writes in an academic style. The 2016 presidentia...

    This is an accessible, comprehensive overview of voter suppression (and its underlying racists motivations) in the US. This was short--about 150 pages--which I really appreciated. Anderson's writing was clear, concise, and generally enjoyable (though the topic itself is utterly infu...

    This was a well-researched and clearly articulated account of historical and on-going voter suppression in the US. The details here will astonish and infuriate any conscientious citizen. Required reading. ...

    This book immediately puts to bed the silly myth that the results of the 2016 election were due to apathy on the part of African and Hispanic Americans. Their votes were suppressed, deliberately. This country has a long tradition of suppressing minority votes. Laws passed over the year...

    As in her previous book, White Rage, Carol Anderson packs a ton of information into a small space with One Person, No Vote. This overview of voter suppression in America, from Reconstruction into the present day, will enrage you. As it should. ...

    Super relevant and timely. Well researched and smart. The writing is very dry. Lots of figures and data points. A thorough break down of voter suppression in a technical way. ...

    An incisive and terrifying look at systematic, racially motivated voter suppression in America and the destruction it is wreaking on our democracy. One Person No Vote traces the history of voter suppression in it's worst forms through modern day shenanigans that are not obvious to the ...

    As we hear from so many in conservative circles, the Constitution is law and it's the defining document everything should flow from. OK, I think in a broad sense we can all agree that's where our country took the first shaky step towards the vision of a Democratic Republic. Yet, almost...

    To see more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. Do you enjoy being enraged by a book? Do you live in Kansas or Alabama? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you have to read this book. Of course, your location doesn't matter, but this b...

    Prof. Anderson is really one of the most lucid and timely voices in contemporary America. This is not some bumbling self-referential and epistemologically closed off to a broad audience academic tome. This, despite the fact that each argument is clear, factual, and well documented. Thi...

    Democrats tend to act as though the greatest harm that results from all the recent monkeying around with voter registration and election mechanics is that the Republican Party gains an unfair advantage. That's true, of course, as far as it goes. But what is often lost in the debate abo...

    This is the book every voter needs to read before the 2018 midterm elections. It's important to know the past so we can change the future. ONE PERSON, NO VOTE is horrifying in its explicit, thorough, and well-researched documentation of voter suppression from 1865 to the present. Highl...

    Well-researched and well-written, this book clearly outlines voter suppression in the US: its history and its status. It made me want to holler and wave it overhead to get everyone's attention. It's a quick read. Voter suppression is the most un-American, anti-democratic thing we do as...

    Carol Anderson rips the bandaid off the festering sore that is the American Electoral System in this well researched and troubling book. Through voter roll manipulation, gerrymandering, voter suppression, Jim Crow intimidation of voters and other tactics, white supremacists continue to...

    A jarring and important overview of the many ways that the right to vote has been suppressed, denied and tampered with for millions of citizens since the beginning of our democracy. Certainly significant as the 2018 midterms approach, but also in light incremental and accelerating roll...

    The author did an amazing job highlighting the voter oppression that has occurred in our Democracy since 1865 until the present. Every person that is of voting age needs to read this book and then register to vote if they aren't already. There are many hard lessons from the past to lea...

    3.5 This book does a great job explaining the history and contemporary iterations of voter suppression, and how closely tied things like voter ID laws are to Jim Crow poll taxes and literacy tests. I think I came into this with a certain expectation that didn't feel totally fulfill...

    Reading this book makes me very glad that I live in California. It's awful that various measures are used to prevent American citizens from voting. ...

    In One Person, No Vote, Carol Anderson immediately takes to task the idea that the 2016 election results were in part the result of a low turnout among people of color. Through painstaking and well-researched detail, she offers a comprehensive explanation of how these votes were very i...

    A bit dry, but provides critical info on voter suppression in recent elections (particularly Roy Moore in Alabama). Definitely recommend. ...

    A well-researched and useful book on a serious problem in American democracy. Here's the "playbook" Anderson outlines for voter suppression: You are a GOP legislator who fears that long term demographic change will run your party (which has shifted into nativism) out of power. The best...

    Amazing and terrifying. Voter suppression, (unlike voter fraud) is real. The party with a shrinking base is doing everything it can to deny voting rights to citizens who would likely vote against them. Because of widespread voter supression and Gerrymandering the US is now classed ...

    So well researched and documented! Very timely with the 2018 elections coming up. ...

    This is the first book that I've read by Carol Anderson (I keep meaning to start "White Rage," but I feel like I'll have to be in a certain book reading mood for that to make the most impact for me, so I'm saving it until I'm in that mood), and I'm impressed. The book is succinct - the...

    Overall I'm glad I read this book and I learned a lot from it. It was very well-researched and was a pretty quick read. I think it's an important book for anyone interested in why our political system is so messed up (which I think should be everyone, but that's just me!). Anderson...

    Anderson has long been an outspoken critic of voter ID laws, voter roll purges, and other practices she argues are disenfranchising primarily African American and other minority voters in America's biggest cities. I admit I was skeptical of Anderson's claims (and similar claims from ot...
