Reviews

'The book makes a convincing case that democracy can work; it offers abundant evidence in support of good governance and empowerment efforts, in developed and developing countries alike. And it adds signficantly to action-oriented theory and democratisation and just human development...If I had to recommend a dozen key books to students of political science and seasoned policy advisors, this book would definitely be on my list.' - Glenn Brigaldino - Development and Cooperation
