Until the late 1980s, there were very few democratically electedgovernments in the developing world. These areas were characterizedby a range of authoritarian regimes from military administrationsto one-party dictatorships. Over the past decade, however, thesituation has altered significantly and an increasing number ofdeveloping countries have made the transition to democracy. Forsome, this process of building and consolidating democracy has beenrelatively easy, while for others, it has proved more complex andharder to sustain.
In this important new textbook, Jeff Haynes seeks to explain whythese differences occur. Adopting a broadly comparative approach,he begins by examining the theories and practice of democratictransition and consolidation in the new democracies of Africa,Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Haynes argues persuasivelythat a country's ability to consolidate democracy depends not onlyon the interaction of structural and agency factors, but also on avariety of specific domestic and international concerns which mayhelp or hinder democratic progress. Using a wide range of casestudies to illustrate his argument, Haynes provides an accessibleand comprehensive analysis of the processes and problems ofdemocratic consolidation in developing nations.
This is an important textbook that will be invaluable to studentsin a variety of areas from politics and comparative politics todevelopment studies and history.

About the Author:


Jeff Haynes is Professor of Politics at London GuildhallUniversity.

Review:

'The 'third wave' of democratisation of the last 25 years hasserved to universalise the concerns of political scientists aboutdemocracy and the conditions which sustain and consolidate it. JeffHaynes has written a comprehensive and highly readable introductionto these questions, drawing on a wide range of theoreticalapproaches and comparative studies. The book will be of great valueto lecturers and students alike working in this field.' AdrianLeftwich, University of York


"Democracy in the Developing World is impressive in thebreadth of its scope and the depth of its theoretical arguments andempirical analysis. The author offers a thoughtful and provocativetheory of democratic consolidation, testing it against a rich arrayof case studies drawn from the developing world. This book isessential reading for anyone interested in the comparative study ofthe developing world or the dynamics of democratization." MehranKamrava, California State University


"The text is methodically organised and Haynes' expression isuniformly clear." Asian Studies Review

"Haynes' book is very well structured and argued...he covers animpressive range of empirical material as well as theoreticalliterature." Lard Svasand, Democratization
