Democracy and Democratization: Processes and Prospects in a Changing World


This book evaluates the current prospects for democracy in the world. The author clarifies the concept of democracy, shows its application in different contexts, and questions whether democratic advancement will continue -- and if so, at what price. The consequences of democracy for economic development, human rights, and peaceful relations among countries are illuminated in both their positive and negative aspects.

The second edition features a new section on the prospects of democracy as we approach the millennium, an extended discussion on economic performance in the current democratic transitions, and an evaluation of the possibilities for further democratic consolidation.
