Many of the researchers on the "fourth wave" of democratization that began in 1989 pursue actor-oriented analyses, neglecting structural variables, suggests Doorenspleet (political science, Leiden U., the Netherlands). Here he takes the opposite approach comparing structural variables mentioned by development, world- system and dependency, class, and democratic diffusion theories between democratizing and non-democratizing countries. He concludes his investigation by selecting several of those factors, combining them in a single generalized model of the structural determinants of democratization, and testing them by quantitative empirical analysis.

Book Description Lynne Rienner Publishers Inc, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With the widespread movement toward democratization that characterized the first post-Cold War decade, why did some nondemocratic regimes undergo a transition toward a democratic political system, but others not? Why have some transitions succeeded completely, but others resulted in only limited political reform? Renske Doorenspleet addresses these questions, providing a systematic theoretical and empirical analysis of variations in transitions to democracy. Doorenspleet interweaves a discussion of key concepts, the major theoretical approaches to democratization, and statistical analyses to illuminate the influence of structural - primarily economic and social - factors on democratic transitions. She also explores the notion of waves of democratization. Though focusing on the 1989-2001 period, she offers a wealth of new evidence covering two centuries of democratic transitions around the globe. Seller Inventory # AAN9781588263063
