Comparative Politics and Government (Re)Democratization and Development

Edited by Perlita M. Frago-Marasigan and Teresa S. Encarnacion Tadem

This volume on comparative politics and government seeks to elaborate and supplement analytical tools and frameworks in which developing countries could be compared. Of major concern is to be able to use this in understanding what have been the problems in the process of development and democratization of developing regions. The articles also seek to provide a basis by which the reader could also critically examine the views presented by the different authors and note their relevance or irrelevance in comprehending similar situations as experiences in developing societies. This will also hopefully inspire alternative conceptual tools and paradigms in examining factors that facilitate as well as hinder the pursuit of development and democracy.
