12 (1998-2012) YEARS OF THE PARTY LIST SYSTEM: Marginalizing People's Representation edited by Bobby M. Tuazon

Excerpt from the Foreword:

"The party-list experiment began as a reform measure to strengthen our demoncracy but, after more than ten years, has been abused to pervert it. This volume examines the whole range of difficulties faced by the party-list system, and the nature of these difficulties tells us a lot about the weaknesses of our democracy itself."
