The breakdown of authoritarian regimes in Greece, Spain and Portugal in the mid 70s was the beginning of a new cycle of democratization at the world scale. The 1980s have seen the emergence of formal, constitutional democracies in many countries, especially in Latin America and Southeast Asia. This book analyzes in a comparative perspective the causes, the modalities and the prospects of these political changes in three regions: Southern Europe, Latin America and Southeast Asia. The first chapter deals with democratic transitions in Greece, Portugal and Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, Bolivia nad Ecuador, Chili and the Philippines. In the second chapter the authors analyze the conditions, the problems and the prospects of democratic consolidation in the same countries.
