[Book abstract] How different were the 2011 elections? Did the political environment in the run-up to the elections restrict the capacity of political organizations to "organize and express themselves"? Could the relative restriction of civil and political freedoms affect the pattern of voting and electoral outcomes? Do the election outcomes represent the people's view? To answer these questions, this new book edited by Sandrine Perrot, Sabiti Makara, Jérôme Lafargue and Marie-Aude Fouéré applies a multidisciplinary approach to conducting a multifaceted analysis of the 2011 elections in Uganda. Geographers, demographers, political scientists and anthropologists contribute different in-depth political analyses, rather than partisan opinions and emotional reactions. The book assesses Uganda's evolving electoral democracy and provides field-based insights into critical, often underappreciated, aspects of the electoral process. (Publisher's abstract)
