This volume analyses from an empirical perspective the opportunities, paths, and results of democratic developments in young countries of transition. Studying selected countries in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and East Asia, the book shows how "defects" emerge in young democracies, in which forms they occur, and under which conditions and how they can perpetuate, change, or be resolved.
