About this item

Political scientists present evidence about citizen attitudes toward democracy drawn from regional surveys of public opinion across the globe conducted between 2004 and 2009. They demonstrate that, far from being strong and ubiquitous, popular support for democracy is equivocal and varies widely between and within regions. During the 1980s, they find, support for democracy rose very rapidly in southern Europe, and the support for democracy and rejection of authoritarian rule have also increased, though more modestly, in central and eastern Europe, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa. In East Asia, however, they recorded declining support for democracy in four of the six countries for which they have two rounds of data. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
