Democracy in the Third World by Robert Pinkney
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an in-depth analysis of the factors contributing to and those hindering the establishment of democracy in Third World countries. Beginning by looking at the concept of democracy in its various forms and the literature thereof, the text then looks at the Third World specifically, examining the impact of colonial rule and the eclipse of democracy in the years after independance. After considering the exceptional countries in which democracy survived intact, the book goes on to look at the various attempts at transition from authoritarianism to democracy, and at the prospects for democracy in the years ahead. This updated edition incorporates explorations ofthe influences of external forces, the roles of the state and civil society, and the varying trajectories of democratic consolidation (and decay).
