Democracy identifies the general processes causing democratization and de-democratization at a national level across the world over the last few hundred years. It singles out integration of trust networks into public politics, insulation of public politics from categorical inequality, and suppression of autonomous coercive power centres as crucial processes. Through analytic narratives and comparisons of multiple regimes, mostly since World War II, this book makes the case for recasting current theories of democracy, democratization and de-democratization.

"Democracy: A Life holds out three unique research aims: a proper understanding of the origins and variety of ancient Greek democracies; a detailed account of the fate of democracy - both the institution and the word - in the ancient Greek and Roman worlds from the fifth century BCE to the 6th century CE; and a nuanced exploration of the ways in which all ancient Greek democracies differed from all modern so-called 'democracies'"--

Essay aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Frieden und Konflikte, Sicherheit, Note: 1,3, Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat Munster (Institut fur Politikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: The Global Governance Structures and the Role of Democracy, 0 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Vollstandige Zitierung uber Fussnoten, daher kein Literaturverzeichnis, Abstract: Die Globalisierung stellt heutzutage neue Herausforderungen an die Struktur des klassischen Nationalstaats und die demokratische Herrschaftsform. Staatliche Handlungsspielraume werden durch eine Vielzahl von sozialen Kreisen, Kommunikationsnetzwerken, Marktbeziehungen und Lebensweisen, die sich im Zuge der Globalisierung immer weiter miteinander verflechten und vertiefen, verandert. Um einen Legitimitatsverlust demokratischer Nationalstaaten zu verhindern, der sich zwangslaufig aus einer unkontrollierten Dynamik nicht transparenter weltwirtschaftlicher Prozesse ergibt, gilt es neue Formen der Machtausubung und Regulierung, d.h. neue Formen des Regierens zu finden, die demokratisch verfassten Herrschaftssystemen wieder Handlungs- und Steuerungskompetenzen in einer globalen Welt einraumen. Dieses Ziel verfolgte die von 1991 bis 1995 von den Vereinten Nationen eingesetzte Commission on Global Governance in einem Bericht, in dem sie Uberlegungen zur Regierbarkeit der Welt im Hinblick auf globale Probleme (Umweltzerstorung, Armut, Migration, Ausbreitung des internationalen Terrorismus) anstellte und schliesslich ein gleichnamiges Konzept entwarf. Im Rahmen dieses Essays werden die wechselseitigen Verbindungen zwischen wissenschaftlichen Ansatzen von Global Governance der jungeren deutschen Forschung, wie sie von den Politikwissenschaftlern Dirk Messner und Franz Nuscheler vertreten werden und David Helds Cosmopolitan Model of Democracy aufgezeigt, das hier exemplarisch fur die amerikanische Forschung steht. In diesem Kontext stellt si"

The question of why some countries have democratic regimes and others do not is a significant issue in comparative politics. This book looks at India and Pakistan, two countries with clearly contrasting political regime histories, and presents an argument on why India is a democracy and Pakistan is not. Focusing on the specificities and the nuances of each state system, the author examines in detail the balance of authority and power between popular or elected politicians and the state apparatus through substantial historical analysis. India and Pakistan are both large, multi-religious and multi-lingual countries sharing a geographic and historical space that in 1947, when they became independent from British rule, gave them a virtually indistinguishable level of both extreme poverty and inequality. All of those factors militate against democracy, according to most theories, and in Pakistan democracy did indeed fail very quickly after Independence. It has only been restored as a façade for military-bureaucratic rule for brief periods since then. In comparison, after almost thirty years of democracy, India had a brush with authoritarian rule, in the 1975-76 Emergency, and some analysts were perversely reassured that the India exception had been erased. But instead, after a momentous election in 1977, democracy has become stronger over the last thirty years. Providing a comparative analysis of the political systems of India and Pakistan as well as a historical overview of the two countries, this textbook constitutes essential reading for students of South Asian History and Politics. It is a useful and balanced introduction to the politics of India and Pakistan.

In this accessible and engaging book, JosZ Nun provides a comprehensive analysis of the theory and practice of democracy from ancient Greece to contemporary Latin America. The author's authoritative historical and comparative discussion of democracy is combined with his own evaluation of the conditions and possibilities for the development of genuinely democratic societies in our time throughout the world. All readers will benefit from Nun's insightful distinction between two visions of democracy-government of the people or government of the politicians-and their profound consequences.

The global trend toward democratization of the last two decades has been accompanied by the resurgence of various politics of "identity/difference." From nationalist and ethnic revivals in the countries of east and central Europe to the former Soviet Union, to the politics of cultural separatism in Canada, and to social movement politics in liberal western-democracies, the negotiation of identity/difference has become a challenge to democracies everywhere. This volume brings together a group of distinguished thinkers who rearticulate and reconsider the foundations of democratic theory and practice in the light of the politics of identity/difference. In Part One Jürgen Habermas, Sheldon S. Wolin, Jane Mansbridge, Seyla Benhabib, Joshua Cohen, and Iris Marion Young write on democratic theory. Part Two--on equality, difference, and public representation--contains essays by Anne Phillips, Will Kymlicka, Carol C. Gould, Jean L. Cohen, and Nancy Fraser; and Part Three--on culture, identity, and democracy--by Chantal Mouffe, Bonnie Honig, Fred Dallmayr, Joan B. Landes, and Carlos A. Forment. In the last section Richard Rorty, Robert A. Dahl, Amy Gutmann, and Benjamin R. Barber write on whether democracy needs philosophical foundations.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem NDR Kultur Sachbuchpreis 2018 als bestes Sachbuch des Jahres Demokratien sterben mit einem Knall oder mit einem Wimmern. Der Knall, also das oft gewaltsame Ende einer Demokratie durch einen Putsch, einen Krieg oder eine Revolution, ist spektakulärer. Doch das Dahinsiechen einer Demokratie, das Sterben mit einem Wimmern, ist alltäglicher – und gefährlicher, weil die Bürger meist erst aufwachen, wenn es zu spät ist. Mit Blick auf die USA, Lateinamerika und Europa zeigen die beiden Politologen Steven Levitsky und Daniel Ziblatt, woran wir erkennen, dass demokratische Institutionen und Prozesse ausgehöhlt werden. Und sie sagen, an welchen Punkten wir eingreifen können, um diese Entwicklung zu stoppen. Denn mit gezielter Gegenwehr lässt sich die Demokratie retten – auch vom Sterbebett.
