The book compares five newly emerged democra¬cies in Europe, South East Asia, Latin America and Africa. Cutting across vastly different historical and cultural backgrounds it tells the story of how societies come to terms with a painful past and how politics, culture and the economy intertwine in the process of creating new democratic nations. The volume pioneers a new approach to the study of democrati¬sation. It does so by combining comparative and interdisciplinary analyses of South Africa, Poland, (East) Germany, South Korea and Chile, that is, five countries where a similar general thrust of democrati¬sation is set against the most diversified cultural and historical backgrounds. From the Contents: Political Society Institutional engineering; post-autocratic party systems; citizen support for democracy. Economic Society Economic policy and performance. Civil Society Civil society and democratic consolidation. Historical Memory Historical memory and democracy.
