From Voting to Violence: Democratization and Nationalist Conflict

by

From Voting to Violence: Democratization and Nationalist Conflict Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

examines the ways in which democratization can exacerbate nationalist fervor and ethnic conflict if the conditions promoting a successful transition are not in place. The book argues that international organizations sometimes cause more conflict than they avert in their rush to establish democratic governments and punish outgoing leaders. Snyder closes by prescribing policies that can make democratic transitions less dangerous and allow fledgling democracies to flourish.

Synopsis:

In his new book, Jack Snyder focuses his clear logic on a pressing issue of our times: nationalism.
