Democracy is what the WTO-protestors are calling for- its the main concern of human rights advocates- and its only long-term way to end terrorism. But how does democracy spread? What can be done to encourage and support. This text brings together a number of eminent authorities on democracy to take on the most widely debated topic in international relations: the promotion of democracy. Spanning political thought from ancient Athens to contemporary Sub-Saharan Africa, this remarkable collection explores the conditions that promote, sustain and undermine democratic institutions and ideas. Expansive and provocative for any student of democracy, The Making and Unmaking of Democracy is a volume to learn from, argue against, or expand upon.
