Scholarly and very informative book on voter suppression. I now understand how difficult many states make it to get a valid ID, like no DVM accessible without a car, and the documents you have to have. All types of voter suppression discussed and extensive references included.

A very up to date book on the practices of Republican governors and Republican legislatures to pass laws to suppress the minority, millennial, and senior vote. I suspect that a combination of Russian fake face book accounts (kept a secret by the FBI until after the election), the FBI's accusations against Hillary Clinton's e-mails (no crime found), and the implemented Republican voter suppression laws constitute the 75,000 vote Trump margin in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania; all that Trump needed to win the electoral college (but lose the popular vote by 2,800,000 votes).
