The game of votes is a well researched and an amazingly written book about the things that happen around the world's biggest democracy. The rise and fall of leaders, the techniques used by the heads of states, and the biggest failures Indian elections has ever witnessed, all written in an interesting way. It's a definite page turner.
For a long time had been looking for a book which can comprehensively explain the role of media, visual and political Communication in elections. A lot is usually said about India and democracy but till today hadn't found a simple, yet well researched easy to read book which can trace the evolution of various political parties in India, especially the rise of BJP. This book, written by an expert communicator and a well respected teacher from one of the leading Communication colleges of the country and is both an exhaustive & an interesting read. What I liked most: - Original Research - Good insights with facts and data on the 2014 and 2019 General Elections in India - Shows a new model of Political Communication and the role that the strategic use of images play in elections today - For the first time could read and understand how elections and parties have evolved over time in India - Also found the chapter comparing the impact of social media and fake news globally and locally really interesting along with the details of the rise of regional parties. Overall would strongly recommend the book not just for future politicians but also for students and teachers of media and communication, political science, and social sciences along with campaign planners and media professionals. Big thumbs up for being bold and brave and attempting to write on an important and timely topic. Really enjoyed reading it!
