With democratic capitalism appearing to sweep the world, this timely collection addresses theoretical and practical aspects of building democracy in one-party systems. Contributions examine the progress and condition of democracy in Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, and the two Chinas; the fall of Gorbachev; and the Serbian drive for hegemony in the Balkans. Focusing upon four main areas, the volume analyzes (1) the theoretical challenge of creating and sustaining democracy, (2) the experience of operating democracy in the absence of two-party competition, as found in the Southern United States, (3) building democracy in the place of communism, and (4) building democracy in less-developed countries.
