Democratization by Edited by Christian Haerpfer (Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Aberdeen)

This textbook introduces students to the theoretical and practical dimensions of democratization in an accessible and systematic way.

Key themes covered in the book include: Theories of democratization and their relation to democratic theory Critical prerequisites and driving social forces of democratic transition Pivotal actors and institutions involved in democratization Conditions for democratic survival and the consolidation of newly democratized countries, and the analysis of failed democratization Demonstrations of how these factors have played a role in the different regions in which the global wave of democratization transplaced authoritarian and communist systems Possible futures of democratization worldwide.

Democratization Reviews


Democratization, edited by Christian W. Haerpfer, Patrick Bernhagen, Ronald F. Inglehart and ChristianWelzel, is an excellent undergraduate textbook.[...] It is divided into four parts. The first covers theories and historical perspectives. Richard Rose, the first of an impressive list of contributors, outlines variations between democratic and authoritarian states, as well as the incomplete democracies that lie between these two categories.[...] The second part of the volume focuses on various causal dimensions of democratisation the international context, economics, gender and civil society. [...] The final part of the volume is particularly useful for students studying global democratisation * Political Studies Review: 2011 Vol 9, 67-141 *
