In recent years, and especially following the end of the cold war, democratization has become one of the most crucial issues on the international political scene. Here, highly respected scholars from around the world explore the role and importance of international relations in the democratic development of states in the Americas and Europe, combining theoretical approaches with a rich set of empirical case studies.

"Seven of 14 chapters deal with the Americas, three others provide analytic context (four treat democratization in Europe). In Americas-specific chapters, leading scholars address themes related to Caribbean democracy, US human rights policy and 'political development assistance,' international political party associations, and international dimensions of development in Brazil and Chile"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
