Abstract

In this study of democratization, Joshua Kurlantzick proposes that the spate of retreating democracies, one after another over the past two decades, is not just a series of exceptions and instead reflects democracy in worldwide decline. Muireann O’Dwyer finds that this book will be useful reading for anyone seeking to gain an understanding of the global democracy recession, as it offers a convincing rebuke to the notion that the march of democracy is inevitable.
