Democracy against itself: Sustaining an unsustainable idea
Chou, Mark Fei-Chun. (2014) Democracy against itself: Sustaining an unsustainable idea Edinburgh University Press.
|Authors||Chou, Mark Fei-Chun|
Why do some democracies self-destruct? Using the collapse of democracy in ancient Athens and the Weimar Republic, as well as the uncertain fate of democratic rule in the United States and China today as illustrative examples, Mark Chou examines the conditions and characteristics of democracy that make it prone to self-destruct. In drawing out the political lessons from these past collapses, he explains how a democracy can, simply by being democratic, sow the seeds of its own destruction.
