Democratization in the Global South, The Importance of Transformative Politics, edited by K. Stokke, O. Törnquist

Summary
Given the weaknesses of mainstream democratisation since the 1980s, the authors present a cutting edge examination of dynamics of political change in the direction of more substantive democracy.
