Public Culture issue: “Cultures of Democracy”

3 April, 2007

The upcoming April 2007 (Volume 19 Number 1)issue  of Public Culture is on  “Cultures of Democracy.”

This is the blurb:

“Cultures of Democracy” … proposes that

democratic strategies and practices pursued by different countries, and their

relative successes, are deeply affected by the countries’ cultures, histories,

and reception of, or resistance to, modernity. Offering accounts of practices

of democracy in Egypt, Yemen, Argentina, and India, the collection suggests

that a commitment to normative models of democracy prevents recognition of

democratic practices in societies not usually seen as democratic or

protodemocratic from a Western vantage point.
