Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungDoes Western-style democracy make sense in the various geographic, economic, and social settings of the continent? How far toward democracy have recentliberalization movements gone? In The Fate of Africa's Democratic Experiments, Leonardo A. Villal n, Peter VonDoepp, and an international group of contributorsconsider the aftermath, success, failure, and future of the wave of democracy thatswept Africa in the early 1990s. In some countries, democratic movements flourished, while in others, democratic success was more circumscribed. This detailed analysisof key political events in countries at the forefront of democratic change -- Benin, Central African Republic, Congo, Guinea-Bissau, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, and Zambia -- provides for broadly representative continental andlinguistic coverage of directions and prospects for Africa'sdemocracies.
The contributors are Michael Chege, John F. Clark, Joshua B. Forrest, Abdourahmane Idrissa, Bruce Magnusson, Carrie Manning, Richard R.Marcus, Andreas Mehler, David J. Simon, Leonardo A. Villal n, and PeterVonDoepp.
