Supermajority voting rules, rules that require more than a majority but less than unanimity, are used for many major political and social decisions in contemporary democracies. In this book, Melissa Schwartzberg examines the history and the logic underlying the use of supermajority voting rules and offers a forceful critique of their purported ability to remedy the defects of majority decision making.
