About this item

Especially when the visceral cry of ‘power to the people!’ has never been louder, the need to explore and understand democratization is of the first importance. It is a fundamental concept for political scientists (and many sociologists). And as research in and around the process whereby states and peoples seek to develop, establish, and entrench democratic polities burgeons as never before, this new four-volume collection from Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Concepts in Political Science series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature. Edited by two of the field’s leading scholars, the collection gathers a wide range of theoretical and empirical materials, bringing together both foundational and canonical work, along with innovative and cutting-edge applications and interventions.

With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editors, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Democratization is an essential work of reference. The collection will be particularly useful as a database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. It will also be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar—and sometimes overlooked—texts. For researchers, students, and instructors, it is a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
