Brief Description
Detailed Description
Specifications

This unique volume explores the extent to which elections as a vehicle of democratization have enhanced economic performance and well-being of citizens of the sub-region.  Today, more than any other time since the end of the Cold-War, elections have become the litmus test for democracy and its consolidation in much of the Third World.  This is more so for countries in West Africa, where instability, and relative economic decline remain key features of its political landscape.  Paradoxically, it is also in this region where some of the most remarkable transitions in democratic governance have occurred.  However, two decades into Huntington’s “third wave,” the democratic gains and outcomes in this region are at best mixed.
