Autocratization in post-Cold War Political Regimes, (PDF) deals with post-Cold War processes of autocratization, that is, system change towards autocracy. While these processes are increasing in number and frequency, autocratization remains a comparatively understudied phenomenon, especially its latest manifestations. In this volume, the authors provide one of the first cross-regional comparative analyses of the current processes of regime change towards autocracy. Building on an original conceptual framework, the two authors involved in the empirical investigation of the spreading of this political syndrome, of the key forms that it takes, and of the modes through which it explains in countries ruled by various political regimes, with different histories and belonging to different regional contexts. The research is performed through a mix of research techniques that include Qualitative Comparative Analysis, descriptive statistical analysis, and case study. This ebook will be of interest to a heterogeneous readership that includes the broader community of scholars, observers, analysts, journalists, and practitioners interested in political development and regime change in different geographical areas.
“Autocratization in Post‐Cold War Political Regimes offers significant contributions to the literature on comparative political regime studies and the discussion on the state of democracy. Hopefully, the ebook will pave the way for future research on patterns of regime transition using an authoritarian perspective.” (Angelo Vito Panaro, Journal of Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics & Society, JSPPS, Vol. 5 (2), 2019)
