Low Intensity Democracy: Political Power in the New World Order


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

A large majority of nation states within the Third World now claim to be run on democratic lines. But how far are these claims justified? With contributions from Noam Chomsky, Samir Amin and Andre Gunder Frank, amongst others, this book offer critical analyses of the new forms of political order. Combining wide-ranging critiques and informed case studies of recent transitions, the contributors assess global trends in economics and political development that help to explain the important similarities in many national trajectories. The authors argue that what we are seeing is not a triumph of democracy but a crisis, as countries throughout the Third World are increasingly subjected to global economic forces beyond their control.

Edited by Barry K Gills, Joel Rocamora and Richard Wilson. Published by Pluto Press, 1993.
