Democracies: Patterns of Majoritarian and Consensus Government in Twenty-one Countries
Yale University Press, 1984 - Comparative government - 229 pages
There is more than one way to run a successful democracy. Lijphart divides these democracies into two basic models: majoritarian democracies, in which the majority rules, and consensus democracies, in which deep divisions in the society have prompted restraints on majority rule. This book is the broadest and most thorough comparative study of democratic regimes available and will be especially suitable for course use.
