Reseña del editor:

Between 1974 and 1990 more than thirty countries in southern Europe, Latin America, East Asia, and Eastern Europe shifted from authoritarian to democratic systems of government. This global democratic revolution is probably the most important political trend in the late twentieth century. In "The""Third Wave, "Samuel P. Huntington analyzes the causes and nature of these democratic transitions, evaluates the prospects for stability of the new democracies, and explores the possibility of more countries becoming democratic. The recent transitions, he argues, are the third major wave of democratization in the modem world. Each of the two previous waves was followed by a reverse wave in which some countries shifted back to authoritarian government. Using concrete examples, empirical evidence, and insightful analysis, Huntington provides neither a theory nor a history of the third wave, but an explanation of why and how it occurred.

Factors responsible for the democratic trend include the legitimacy dilemmas of authoritarian regimes; economic and social development; the changed role of the Catholic Church; the impact of the United States, the European Community, and the Soviet Union; and the "snowballing" phenomenon: change in one country stimulating change in others. Five key elite groups within and outside the nondemocratic regime played roles in shaping the various ways democratization occurred. Compromise was key to all democratizations, and elections and nonviolent tactics also were central. New democracies must deal with the "torturer problem" and the "praetorian problem" and attempt to develop democratic values and processes. Disillusionment with democracy, Huntington argues, is necessary to consolidating democracy. He concludes the book with an analysis of the political, economic, and cultural factors that will decide whether or not the third wave continues.

Several "Guidelines for Democratizers" offer specific, practical suggestions for initiating and carrying out reform. Huntington's emphasis on practical application makes this book a valuable tool for anyone engaged in the democratization process. At this volatile time in history, Huntington's assessment of the processes of democratization is indispensable to understanding the future of democracy in the world.

At this volatile time in history, Huntington's assessment of the processes of democratization is indispensable to understanding the future of democracy in the world. Samuel P. Huntington is Eaton Professor of the Science of Government and Director of the John M. Olin Institute for Strategic Studies at Harvard University. He is the author of many books on comparative politics and military affairs and served as Coordinator of Security Planning for the National Security Council. He is a founder of the journal Foreign Policy and a former president of the American Political Science Association. "An exceptionally important-and also brilliant-book. Though Huntington would disclaim the distinction, it does stamp him as a democratic Machiavelli.--" Zbigniew Brzezinsky "The book will be extremely valuable to all Third World leaders, whether trying to advance or impede democratization movements, and to all diplomats and statesmen engaged in observing and dealing with formerly communist nations, nondemocratic developing nations, and new democracies. Huntington presents a clear, logical and sound framework for understanding the recent democratization process, a blueprint for the achievement of democracy, and an analysis of the prospects for reversal, consolidation and further growth of democracy among nation-states."-Professor Edwin Corr, Department of Political Science, University of Oklahoma. "The major contribution of the book is that it draws from the empirical evidence guidelines for democratizers on what strategies to pursue both to overthrow authoritarian governments and to consolidate democratic regimes. The tone of the book is decidedly prescriptive. Huntington is not content with merely describing what has taken place but is eager to draw lessons for democratic reformer Volume 4 in Ju. book.
