About this book

An analysis of the transnationalization of politics in several societies concerned by programs of democracy promotion, the contributors to this book seek to understand how these new global norms and programs create forms of appropriation and resistance at the local level.

Reviews

"Petric and his colleagues trace the imbrications of 'transnational civil society' with local power structures and traditions, showing how NGOs' very denial of political involvement and their claims to purely technical legitimacy have strong political consequences. A milestone in the social scientific study of democracy."

John R. Bowen, Department of Anthropology, Washington University in St. Louis

"This book is a welcome addition to scholarship on democracy in regions across Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean that are negotiating political futures beyond authoritarian government. It presents a vital dialogue between anthropology and politics grounded in vibrant case studies that examine democracy in the very process of its production in countries as diverse as Afghanistan, Bolivia, Romania, and Senegal."

K. Sivaramakrishnan, Department of Anthropology, Yale University
