Abstract

Recent events challenge historians to account for the renewed appeal of democracy around the world and to reexamine their theories of world political development. The authors argue that the idea of Europeans having a special fitness for democracy should be abandoned and that the quasi-democratic institutions of the European past find parallels in many other parts of the world.
