Description - Contemporary Democracies by G. Bingham Powell

Why do some democracies succeed while others fail? In seeking an answer to this problem, Powell examines the record of voter participation, government stability, and violence in 29 democracies during the 1960s and 1970s. The core of the book is the treatment of the role of political parties in mobilizing citizens and containing violence.
