Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the experience with democracy promotion in the Americas. It offers an up-to-date, engaging discussion, which balances theory and empirical analysis. An important contribution and a valuable analysis of a key normative question―how do we assist democracy?―that extracts lessons of great policy relevance.

(Gerardo L. Munck, School of International Relations, University of Southern California, coauthor of Passion, Craft, and Method in Comparative Politics)

This book is a comprehensive and solid analysis of the ups and downs of democracy promotion in the Americas. It shows how much the democracy cause has gained ground in the region since the historic 1991 OAS Santiago Commitment to Democracy, but it also demonstrates the failures and shortcomings of this process, as well as the challenges that lie ahead in the defense and promotion of representative democracy in the Americas. It is a fine guidebook for scholars and practitioners.

(Heraldo Muñoz, Ambassador of Chile to the United Nations)

This timely volume assembles a diverse international team to cast light on the transnationalization of regime change in the Americas. Comparing OAS, state-based, and NGO promotion efforts across the region, this study expands our understanding of democracy beyond an electoral process―to include important dimensions of citizenship and accountability. Analytically, the interplay between structural and normative interpretations of democratization advances the constructivist approach to world politics.

(Alison Brysk, University of California, Irvine)

A worthy successor to Tom Farer's seminal Beyond Sovereignty.

(Richard Feinberg Foreign Affairs)

Excellent new volume.

(Jesse Lerner-Kinglake Bulletin of Latin American Research)
