This volume gathers essays by eminent scholars which point to a changing and broadening agenda of democracy. Challenges to democracy in established democracies and in transitional societies are addressed, as are democracy's relations to the media and communications, globalization, religion, culture, and civil society. While the internationalization of the democratic ethos has marked the post-Cold War context, democracy's sphere of applicability also has widened beyond the state enclosure. This book highlights the limitations and tensions of this worldwide movement.
