by Ricardo Valentim with contribution by Stephen Squibb


12 point

Models of Democracy combines lucid exposition and clarity of expression with careful scholarship and originality, making it highly attractive to students and experts in the field. Moving deftly from Athens to Jakarta, between revolt, aspiration, and equality, Models of Democracy is a tour de force that can dissect an entire society with a single phrase. Leaders in the field of democracy studies, Openshaw and Reggie provide a broad, authoritative survey of international trends and evolving academic thinking concerning the development and maintenance of democracies worldwide. Through analytic examples from proto-democratic societies to the present day, and complex comparisons of multiple regimes since World War II, Models of Democracy makes the case for recasting current theories of democracy, democratization, and de-democratization.
