"Smith's research is extremely well documented, and he provides a resource guide for those who want to learn more about the initiative process and current ballot measures." -- Booklist
"Smith's book is essential reading for anyone who cares about representative democracy in America. In this penetrating analysis of entrepreneurial populism, the author demonstrates that direct democracy--which is challenging the current system--may have at its foundation astroturf rather than grass roots." -- Alan Rosenthal, Rutgers University
