Despite the much-vaunted "triumph of democracy," much of the world's population continues to live under political or military dictatorships. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the modern non-democratic regimes that, in the form of fascist, communist, and military dictatorships, have dominated much of the 20th century and still play a major role in world affairs. The book explores why these regimes emerge, how they consolidate their positions by seeking legitimacy, how they make policies and implement them, and whether they are effective promoters of economic growth or economic reform.
