Towards Democratic Viability (New Casebooks)

by

Towards Democratic Viability (New Casebooks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book traces the twin processes of economic liberalization and political democratization in Bolivia since the 1980s placing both processes in their historical context. The essays focus on the issue of democratic viability, and raise broader questions of the relationship between democratization and its socio-economic context.

Book News Annotation:

Introducing a more comprehensive method of analysis involving a number of new ways to think about democracy, British academics and Bolivian former and current officials describe and evaluate recent changes in the South American country in both the economic and political spheres, and analyze the contribution of those changes to resolving long- standing problems. They consider the limitations and constraints on action, and offer recommendations about the sort of policy responses needed to deepen the democracy.
