Reviews

Global Perspectives on US Democratization Efforts is another valuable contribution by Burt and Añorve to the literature on US foreign policy. It is an excellent companion to their impressive Global Perspectives on US Foreign Policy (2013). What sets these important volumes apart from much of the literature is that the perspectives are those of the rarely heard from subjects of US foreign policy.” (Brett Bowden, multi-award—winning author of “The Empire of Civilization” (2009))

“One of the intrinsic contradictions of US democratization policies around the world is that opaque interests and unintended consequences are often associated with the noble goal of empowering people. Leading a diverse group of international scholars, Burt and Añorve Añorve provide a broad range of standpoints about American democratization foreign policies from those who are on the receiving end of it. Under this unique ‘outside looking in’ perspective, this volume contributes to the literature in International Relations by exploring a variety of democratization theories, contrasting empirical analyses and providing intriguing findings.” (Roberto Domínguez, Associate Professor, Suffolk University, USA)
