In this book noted political scientist and peace researcher Luc Reychler gets to the heart of democratization at the end of the 20th Century. He rejects theories that contend democracy is not inherently universal. He argues instead that a consolidated democracy has empirically shown to be the best instrument for guaranteeing freedom, respect for human rights, welfare and security.
