    He authored many books on comparative politics and military affairs and served as Coordinator of Security Planning for the National Security Council. Huntington's emphasis on practical application makes this book a valuable tool for anyone engaged in the democratization process. The Chinese government has become quite skilled at permitting economic freedoms and private enterprise while maintaining strict limits on political freedoms, contradicting the conventional wisdom that economic liberalization will necessarily lead to political liberalization. Sometimes these reforms produce protracted transitions in which the new democratic regime does not break dramatically from the old regime, as in the case of Mexico. Early modernization theorists noted that the most successful and enduring democracies at the time were also the richest, whereas most poor countries had difficulty developing democracy. These unexpected events created new uncertainties in a troubled region: Would the Arab Spring lead to a flowering of democracy?

    These social ties promote a level of moderation in society that encourages tolerance of diversity and prevents political conflicts from escalating into violence. Each of the two previous waves was followed by a reverse wave in which some countries shifted back to authoritarian government. The consolidation process entails a much broader and more complex process of institutionalization of the new democratic rules for political life. To best serve democratization, should civil society be characterized by moderation, cooperation, and apolitical associations of equal actors linked through horizontal relationships? Moorhead, Theology Today "Hatch provides an excellent account of the rise of democratically based, anti-elitist Protestant denominations in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century America, linking them historically to the egalitarianism of Jeffersonian America.

    Calhoon, William and Mary Quarterly "This study sheds important new light on early American social history. Most analysts agree that the third wave has crested if not reversed. Organizations like the Ku Klux Klan demonstrate that citizen associations do not always involve people in harmless efforts and that group involvement does not always cut across existing social cleavages. Early modernization theorists noted that the most successful and enduring democracies at the time were also the richest, whereas most poor countries had difficulty developing democracy.

A major criticism of explanations emphasizing economic development is that it is not clear whether the relationship between economic growth and democracy is positive or negative.

Calhoon, The Southern Friend, Journal of the North Carolina Friends Historical Society "Nathan Hatch presents an excellent and provocative account of the triumph of popular religion in the antebellum republic. This civil society was highly politicized and contributed to the polarization of politics, drawing people apart and fueling hatred of different social groups, undermining democratic values.

In addition, the loss of popular support is not a necessary or sufficient condition for democratic breakdown; democracies tend to be overthrown by elite conspiracies rather than popular revolt. Second, as the third wave wore on, the focus of research switched from transitions to the problems of consolidation faced by many young democracies.

Chen has argued that, while the Internet may have democratizing effects, the Internet alone cannot deliver democracy at all levels of society unless technologies are purposely designed for the nuances of democracy, specifically the engagement of large groups of people in between elections in and beyond government.

By Laurence Whithead. There is, however, broad agreement that the following conditions should not be viewed as deterministic but rather probabilistic in the sense of making democracy more likely to flourish.

He attributed to the country the role of mentor and example for the newborn democracies. An alternative strategy is to measure the legitimacy of the democratic regime among citizens under the theory that a democracy is consolidated when all political actors recognize democracy as the best system for their society.

But the "flat line" would not last for long, as the third wave was about to surge in a way no one had ever seen. 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.

The success of democracy over time increases levels of democratic attitudes and values as a rational, learned response to the experience of living under a stable democratic regime.

The explosive spread of democracy around the world beginning in the midth century radically transformed the international political landscape from one in which democracies were the exception to one in which they were the rule.

His rich, albeit unsystematic, empirical material provides ready evidence to support his concept of democratization as a complex and open-ended process.

First, there appear to be many paths to democracy. Some political scientists stress the cultural norms of trust and tolerance which underlie democracy. Other scholars criticize these studies for assuming the causal arrow moves in one direction, from culture to democratic institutions.

Markets have broadened and diversified. Some have argued that this is linked to reduced dependence on traditional information technology departments. 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.

Oxford: Oxford University Press, In top-down transitions, leaders of an authoritarian regime implement democratic reforms because they become convinced that the reforms are necessary for regime survival.Nathan O. Hatch uses the second sentence of The Democratization of American Christianity to inform the reader that the book argues "both that the theme of democratization is central to understanding the development of American Christianity, and that the years of the early republic are the most crucial in revealing that process" (3).5/5(5).
