No eBook available Amazon. A lot of the empirical results are interesting in terms of correlation but, again, aren’t super well-motivated. The theory sheds light on the logic of electoral autocracies, among the most common type of autocracy today, and the factors that lead to the transformation of autocratic elections into democratic ones.
Voters could not simply throw the “rascals out of office” because their choices were constrained by a series of strategic dilemmas that compelled them to support the autocrats. With incisive theorizing and rich empirical testing, she solves crucial puzzles, such as how an unpopular government can submit itself to elections and still retain power.

Magaloni uses formal modeling and game theory to support her argument that the PRI was able to stay in power for 72 years because of combination autoccracy delivering economic growth, clientelism and its overwhelming electoral victories.
