Abstract:

With the demise of authoritarian governments in Europe and South America, the fall of Communism in eastern and central Europe, and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, scholars of democratization have been provided with an opportunity to test their theories against reality. Democratic Theory and Post-Communist Change represents the result of a collaborative effort of scholars trained in political science, sociology, law, and economics. These scholars analyze relevant democratic theory and apply it to recent events in the formerly communist states. Editor Robert D. Grey introduces this analysis by tracing the rise and fall of communism and examining democracy in the post-communist world. Other sections examine what political entities need to do to make the transition to democracy and ensure its stability, whether or not "The People" matter to democracy, and what political orientations are supportive of it.

The conversion to "Rule of Law" and "Constitutionalism" and their relationship to democracy and the free market are studied. How democracy will fare in an environment of cultural diversity, what the development and impact of economic policy will be, and how the promotion and support of democracy by international powers will affect its success are among the topics considered. An interdisciplinary fusion of theory and empirical analysis, Democratic Theory and Post-Communist Change represents a comprehensive and informative study of the conditions for and processes of democratization in the former communist world.
