*Yosef Kamal Ibssa, University of Copenhagen*

Review from previous edition Authoritative, clearly written, and well integrated, this book will be an invaluable resource to students at all levels, from undergraduates to practicing scholars in related fields and disciplines.

The book is the new Bible of democratization research, offering an intellectual adventure for both scholars of democratization studies in their further research, and university students eager to learn about the current practices of democratizing states.
