Politicising Democracy : The New Local Politics of Democratisation Paperback / softback

Edited by John Harriss, Kristian Stokke, Olle Tornquist

Part of the International Political Economy Series series

Description

There is a major contradiction in contemporary politics: there has been a wave of democratization that has swept across much of the world, while at the same time globalization appears to have reduced the social forces that have built democracy historically.

This book, by an international group of authors, analyzes the ways in which local politics in developing countries - often neglected in work on democratization - render democratic experiments more or less successful in realizing substantial democracy.
