The authors have gone beyond the traditional case-study approach to create a cohesive, comparative collection organized around a common analytical framework. Among the specific questions explored in each chapter are; How do governments and the various groups in civil society define their brands of democracy, and what is the degree of convergence or divergence? What are the reasons behind the present democratization process? How reversible or credible is that process? What is the chemistry of government-civil society interaction?
