Abstract:Does Western-style democracy make sense in the various geographical, economic, and social settings of the continent? How far toward democracy have recent liberalization movements gone? By focusing on the roles of elites and institutions in shaping the democratization processes in ten African countries (Benin, Central African Republic, Congo, Guinea-Bissau, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Niger and Zambia), the contributions in this collective volume consider the aftermath, success, failure, and future of the wave of democracy that swept Africa in the early 1990s. The book originated in two linked panels at the meetings of the International Studies Association (ISA), held in Chicago in February 2001. Contributors: Michael Chege, John F. Clark, Joshua B. Forrest, Abdourahmane Idrissa, Bruce A. Magnusson, Carrie Manning, Richard R. Marcus, Andreas Mehler, David J. Simon, Leonardo A. Villalón, and Peter VonDoepp. [ASC Leiden abstract]
