When is Democracy Normal? The Relation to Demography, Market Economy and Globalization
2008 0-7734-5238-9
The author provides a new definition of democracy—one permitting the continuous achievement of a more equal distribution of political power—before discussing the main conditions (economic development, the political process, external influences) responsible for democratic transition and development. Arguing that post-modernization theory can explain globalization, he builds on the democratic peace thesis, contending that globalization is a function of democracy. Bu how does this impact the social justice continuum?
