  • Comparing autocracies in the early Twenty-first Centuryby Aurel Croissant; Steffen Kailitz; Patrick Koellner; Stefan Wurster

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 160.00

    Despite the so-called Third Wave of Democratization, many autocracies have been resilient in the face of political change. Moreover, many of the transition processes that could be included in the Third Wave have reached a standstill, or, at the very least, have taken a turn for the worse, leading sometimes to new forms of non-democratic regimes. As... more...

  • Twenty Years of Studying Democratizationby Aurel Croissant; Jeffrey Haynes

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 160.00

    Democratization emerged at a time of epochal change in global politics: the twin impacts of the end of the Soviet Union and the speeding up and deepening of globalisation in the early 1990s meant a whole new ball game in terms of global political developments. The journal’s first issue appeared in early 1994. Over time, the editorial position has... more...

  • Democratization and Social Movements in South Koreaby Sun-Chul Kim

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

This book examines how social movements in previously authoritarian... more...
