"For the foreseeable future, this book will be the essential reference on African multiparty elections."(Foreign Affairs)

"An important contribution to the study of African politics and democratization in general... Highly recommended."(Choice)
"A rigorous investigation... This book makes a notable contribution to the study of electoral politics, democratisation theory and the study of African politics."(Peter Burnell Political Studies Review)
"Lindberg contributes a serious study that has significant heuristic value and will encourage a testing and retesting of its hypotheses and theoretical premises."(John R. Heilbrunn Comparative Political Studies)
"This book is an original, important, and in many ways impressive study that will make a contribution to both electoral and Africanist scholarship."(James R. Scarritt Perspectives on Politics)
"This book is a path-breaking and much-needed study of the role of elections in Africa."(Nic Cheeseman Africa)
"Lindberg has done a good job. Written with serious academic and methodological rigor, this book contributes to the discourse on comparative democratization in Africa."(Arthur Abraham International Journal of African Historical Studies)
"Contains significant levels of data and analysis and will be a useful text for students and practitioners alike."(Heather Deegan Democratization)
"There is a dearth of publications on democratization in Africa, but here is a book that is presented on the basis of solid empirical data and carries a surprisingly positive message. Lindberg meticulously codes all the information on African elections and democratization and makes it available to the scholarly community. This first-rate book is complete in theoretical respects and demonstrates Lindberg's great versatility in handling large amounts of data."(Goran Hyden, University of Florida, Gainesville)

This talks about the free and fair election and democracy system in Africa, though I feel this some items or outdated, it was perfectly useful to understand the basic concept.
