Pathways to Democracy free pdf A global examination that includes nations in Latin America, Asia, Russia, Eastern Europe, and Africa, this book investigates the implications of the various paths that nations take to democracy and the political and economic programmes needed to stabilise new democracies. From military to authoritarian to communist oligarchies, the essays reveal that democratic transitions were instigated by division within the ruling elite, and poor economic performance followed in its wake. An extensive look at what the United States can do through its foreign policy to promote and invest in democratisation is included.
