Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book explains why citizens sometimes comply with and sometimes disobey the demands of democratic governments. It argues that citizens are more likely to comply and even give active consent when they perceive government as procedurally fair in both decisionmaking and implementation processes and when they believe other citizens are also doing their share. The author develops her argument by exploring over two hundred years of military service policies in six democratic countries.

Synopsis:

This book explains the institutionalization of policy in response to anticipated and actual citizen behavior and the conditions under which citizens give, refuse and withdraw their consent.
