We've comprehensively compiled reviews of The Right to Vote from the world's leading experts.
Susan Ware This is about the only comprehensive history of the right to vote. He looks at the racial dynamics of voting after the Civil War and the demand for restricting immigrants’ access to the ballot box through literacy tests. This book is a critical read because it reminds us that voting rights are always contested. It puts the suffrage story, the story of women organizing to get the vote, into the larger history of voting. (Source)
