Zakaria provides some very useful insight into many of the modern day trends that currently afflict our democracy. The book does lack concrete solutions but leaves you clearly informed about the main causes of our current day political malaise. Also Zakaria challenges many modern day notions about democracy and society in general. A must read for anyone interested in government

Read this book for a course on democratization theory. Traces the evolution of democratic principles, institutions, and systems over time. Additionally, Zakaria gives great examples of case studies around the world. Zakaria also reveals that Democracies come in all shades and varieties. While some are liberal in orientation, others are illiberal in nature. A good foundational work that should be read by all who are interested in the forces that make up a democratic society and its people. Excellent!

Very inquistive look at the common institutions and political activity we witness in our country and abroad. Momumental in terms of political theory that would be a great read for any politician or aspiring politician.

zarkaria makes bold statements when approaching the subject of democracy and inspires the reader to think about common words such as democracy and liberal and freedom. we all need to do that now and then. just think and be aware and see things in different ways. very powerful ways of looking at the world. highly recommend it.
