Democracy and Civil Society in a Global Era addresses challenges to the strengthening of active citizenship. In this highly-structured work, the themes presented are linked to fostering a culture of peace and non-violence, the lessening of fear and insecurity in political, economic, social, and cultural terms inherently detached from the conceptualization of political delineations and physical boundaries, and the ability to live dignified lives. The various regions that are represented in the case studies include: the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Iran, China, the Middle East, Nigeria and the EU. The commonality and universality of the topics allows readers from any region of the world to relate to them.

This book presents a dynamic combination of theory and field research, and is an iconoclastic tour-de-force of studies in democracy. Policy makers, think tanks and development practitioners may be particularly be interested in this book because it is about action rather than mere ideas and processes. It demonstrates how social movements can introduce and strengthen equality, inclusion, accountability, and the free flow of information. These elements, in turn, can contribute to the acculturation of freedom and social justice, in the developed world just as much as in the developing world.

Review:

"There is a vast and burgeoning literature on ‘democracy’ and ‘modernity’ and their links to ‘civilized values’, and this project became even more urgent after the events of 9/11. Much of this work presents only a partial, inevitably western-centric view. This latest volume adopts a broader, global perspective. Bringing together some of the leading theorists in the field of democracy studies, the book explores less familiar approaches; in the process, it raises and seeks to answer highly pertinent questions. An impressive and refreshing addition to the field, it is likely to appeal to researchers, students and those with a need to know what can be done differently." –Maria Holt, University of Westminster, UK

"This book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the complex socio-economic and political matrix in a Global Era. The collection of works is representative of truly transnational issues. Immigration and human trafficking, democratization for peace and security, active citizenship, role of civil society, political corruption, and ethnic diversity are some of the many issues addressed in the book. Readers will be enthralled by the richness of the collection of articles and case studies." –Hasnat Dewan, Fulbright scholar and award-winning professor of Economics, Thompson Rivers University, Canada
