Samenvatting

This volume examines the nature and role of democratic citizenship, the conditions necessary fro its development, and its relationship to the key democratic institutions of the state. Comparing and contrasting the patterns of political development and practice in established democracies with those states that have experienced democatic breakdown, the author aims to contribute to our understanding of the political conditions that sustain liberal democracy. The book contains two parts, which have a broad theme in common. The aim in Part One is to contribute to the debate on democracy's preconditions. Drawing on a broad range of theories, the author specifies certain societal and institutional traits which can serve to further democracy. Democratic development in Africa, Latin America and India then is compared. The conclusion is that democracy is not the product of social and economic forces first of all. To a yet greater extent it is the consequence of prevailing institutional conditions, i.e. the nature of the state. The historical development of state structures is the object of analysis in Part Two. The focus is mainly on Europe. The prospects for democracy in modern times have been greatly affected, the author maintain, by varying paths of institutional development. Moreover, the differing modes of state have displayed a variable capacity for governance and economic development. The evolution of state structures thus has consequences across broad areas of political and social life.
