520    "This book uses rich primary research to develop 
       innovative measures of political engagement that capture 
       considerable diversity in the voting behaviour of rural 
       citizens, and show how they are exploiting political 
       spaces that are opening up as a result of social and 
       economic change. While these changes have allowed poorer 
       rural voters to gain some strategic advantage vis-à-vis 
       their landlords, they have not yet contributed 
       substantially to the creation of broad constituencies of 
       support for Pakistan's political parties due to the 
       existence of an alternate local political institution - 
       the village level vote bloc. Landed elites organise vote 
       blocs to control village politics, while voters use them 
       to advance their political interests strategically. This 
       makes vote blocs inherently unstable political 
       institutions as both leaders and voters change their 
       behaviour and strategies over time - reacting to one 
       another and to socio-economic changes - and cause shifts 
       to occur in the organisation of rural politics"--
