The Resilience of Democracy: Persistent Practice, Durable Idea

Cover
Peter J. Burnell, Peter Calvert
Psychology Press, 1999 - 293 Seiten
This volume brings together studies of the small number of previously established states that have retained and/or restored democracy despite - in many cases - formidable economic, social or political challenges. It seeks to establish common themes, whether or not they appear to fit a grand casual theory. It is, after all, the very adaptability of democratic systems that characterises their persistence, durability and resilience.
