Citizens of many democracies are becoming more critical of basic political institutions and detached and disaffected from politics in general.

This is a new comparative analysis of this trend that focuses on major democracies throughout Latin America, Asia and Central Europe. It brings together leading scholars to address three key areas of the current debate:

the conceptual discussion surrounding political disaffection the factors causing voters to turn away from politics the actual consequences for democracy

This is a highly relevant topic as representative democracies are coming to face new developments. It deals with the reasons and consequences of the so called 'democratic deficit' in a systematic way that enables the reader to develop a well-rounded sense of the area and its main debates.

This book is an invaluable resource for all students of political science, sociology, cultural studies and comparative politics.
