The "third wave" is not simply a story of democratic progress. Because of the low quality of democracy in many developing countries and post-communist states, many publics are disenchanted with the way democracy is working.

Democracy in Developing Countries. By Larry Diamond,, Jonathan Hartlyn, Juan J. Linz, Seymour Martin Lipset. Democracy in Developing Countries. When our project began in the mid-1980s with a conference on twenty-six developing countries, the third wave of global democratization had not yet been named or clearly identified, and the return of democracy to Latin America was still somewhat new and uncertain.

Deriving from a conference at the Hoover Institution, the chapters in this volume, though encompassing a wide range of regions, methods, and foci, all highlight the profound linkages between political culture and democracy. The volume is divided into four major parts: historical and comparative perspectives; intellectuals, higher education, and democracy; state elites and mass political culture; and religion, political culture, and democracy. An introduction and conclusion are provided by editor Diamond, and a foreword by Gabriel Almond. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
