What are the prospects of the liberal democratic form of state spreading throughout the world? Does the global system promote or hinder those prospects? Is the optimism of liberal internationalism reasonable? Democracy and the Global System analyses the relationship between liberal democracy and the global system while developing a critique of liberal internationalism. Fabian Biancardi examines some of the key questions of modern politics and the major ideas of a number of significant authors and texts, including Barrington Moore Jr., Karl Polyani, Joseph Schumpeter, Samuel Huntington and David Held. While sympathetic to the aim of spreading liberal democracy globally, he demonstrates the many tensions and contradictions involved in achieving this outcome.
