Patterns of Democracy: Government Forms and Performance in Thirty-Six Countries (Paperback)Arend Lijphart (author)
In this updated and expanded edition of his classic text, Arend Lijphart offers a broader and deeper analysis of worldwide democratic institutions than ever before. Examining thirty-six democracies during the period from 1945 to 2010, Lijphart arrives at important-and unexpected-conclusions about what type of democracy works best.
Praise for the previous edition:
"Magnificent. . . . The best-researched book on democracy in the world today."-Malcolm Mackerras, American Review of Politics
