It focuses on 172 contemporary states, with historical data on the measures of democracy and on explanatory variables extending back to the 1850s. It presents a comprehensive exploration of democratization, its successes and failures, making predictions on the prospects for democracy for single countries and for seven regions of the world. As well as presenting empirical analyses of democratization on the basis of Vanhanens's resource distribution theory of democratization and making predictions on the prospects, the book includes contributions from five commentators, Mitchell A. Seligson on Latin America, Samuel Decalo and John W. Forje on Africa, John Henderson on Oceania and Ilter Turan on why some of the countires that pass Vanhanen's democratic threshold cannot in fact be seen as democracies. The volume also includes an introductory chapter which examines and compares other theoretical interpretations of democratization. Prospects for Democracy will be essential reading for all serious students of comparative politics and democracy.

✏Puzzles of the Democratic Peace Book Summary : Ever since the revival of Kant's Perpetual Peace thesis, the linkages between democracy and peace has been a central topic in international relations research, with sustained debate over whether it exists and if it does, why it does. In this stimulating volume, two leading IR scholars place the democratic peace debate within a broader context, including the extent of threats in international relations, degree of satisfaction with the status quo, the diffusion of democracy, and the rise of the trading state. Step by step, Thompson and Rasler examine the democratic peace through a series of puzzles concerning arguments at the dyadic, systemic, and individual state levels. Synthesizing a broad range of knowledge and linking islands of theory, Puzzles of the Democratic Peace provides a distinctive look at the state of the field and paths forward.

✏The Politics of Human Rights Book Summary : The Belgrade Circle was established as an intellectual forum to promote the establishment of a free, open, democratic and rational civil society around the world. This volume sets out to describe the political and philosophical underpinnings to the idea of human rights by bringing together a collection of original essays from a group of highly distinguished theorists. Whilst accepting the advantages of a legalist model in globalizing the issue of human rights, it also recognizes that Western insistence on universality of the concept can function as a diplomatic cover for post-colonial intervention. It insists that the campaign for human rights must take into account the varied social and economic environments in different nation states that affect the ways in which they can be implemented. Above all it insists that the best way of promoting a universal concept of human rights is by demonstrating international solidarity with those many individuals and groups whose basic rights are jeopardized or denied. Contributors: John Rawls, Emmanuel Levinas, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Richard Rorty, Peter Dews, Charles Taylor, Jon Elster, Antonio Cassese, Robert Dahl, Aleksandar Molnar, Marijana Santrac, Charlotte Bunch, Obrad Savic, Anthony Giddens, Terry Eagleton, Rajesh Sampath, Jean Baudrillard, Noam Chomsky, Paul Jalbert, and Christopher Norris.
