Abstract

From a worldwide perspective, democracy has been a popular theme for scholarly research since the end of the Cold War. As John Peeler points out, however, creative new theorizing about democracy can be dated from the late 1960s. Moreover, the wave of (re)democratization in Latin America that started at the end of the 1970s had begun to spawn a significant literature on democratic development in the region well before the disintegration of the Soviet Union. An oft-raised issue, of course, was whether this strengthening of democratic processes would prove to be sustainable.
