About the Author:



Thomas Carothers is vice president for international politics and governance at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and founder and director of the Endowment's Democracy and Rule of Law Project.


Review:

"Carothers's examinations have helped us think harder and more critically about our work and we are better at what we do because of his insights." —Kenneth Wollack, president, National Democratic Institute



"The promotion of democracy has never had a more thoughtful advocate or a tougher critic than Thomas Carothers. Balanced, incisive, steeped in local knowledge and yet focused on the big picture, this remarkable collection of trenchant essays is full of good judgments and sharp insights. Essential reading for both democracy's critics and its advocates." —Michael W. Doyle, author, WAYS OF WAR AND PEACE



"Thomas Carothers is the world's leading authority on democracy promotion. Though a passionate believer in the virtues of democracy, Carothers is no romantic. His analysis is as rigorous as it is compelling. This brilliant collection of essays reveals his unique sensibility: both hardheaded and humane. For anyone interested in the promise and pitfalls of promoting democracy around the world, Carothers's book is a gold mine." —Robert Kagan, author, of PARADISE AND POWER
