AREND LIJPHART DEMOCRACY IN PLURAL SOCIETIES PDF

As a grad student long ago, my peers and I collaborated to write and exchange summaries of political science research. I posted them to a wiki-style website. If you have more recent summaries to add to this collection, send them my way I guess. Sorry for the ads; they cover the costs of keeping this online.

Through the analysis of political systems in six continents, he demonstrates that what he calls consociational democracy can be successful in severely divided or plural societies. Bingham Powell, Jr. Meyer, Perspective "Lijphart, an optimist concerning the spread of democracy to the nations of the Third World, sets forth in this wide-ranging study the theory of consociational democracy to accomplish that goal.

This will-written work, containing a wealth of information on politics of many diverse nations is highly recommended for academic libraries. With a penetrating examination of several exemplary successes and a few failures of consociational democracy in Western and non-Western societies.

Lijphart concludes that partition may be the only solution if consociational democracy should prove unworkable. This comparative study is a significant contribution to the literature and is recommended for graduate libraries. Here, once again, Arend Lijphart is directing our attention to matters which will surely engage much of the attention of students of comparative politics in the next decade.

For all its lucidity, its principal merit is the scope and logic of the argument, not the practical conclusions, and nobody should embark on it unless they subscribe to the principal that it is better to travel hopefully than to arrive. It draws evidence from an impressive range of countries, from Belgium to Malaysia, from Cyprus to Nigeria.

Throughout it is pervaded by a deep seriousness, combining scholarship with commitment in a way which will be appreciated by students of Europe and of the Third World, by normative theorists and empirical theorists. A study which can still speak to such a wide audience in political science deserves a warm welcome from the profession.

Arend Lijphart

Major works[ edit ] Lijphart is the leading authority on consociationalism , or the ways in which segmented societies manage to sustain democracy through power-sharing. Lijphart developed this concept in his first major work, The Politics of Accommodation, a study of the Dutch political system , and further developed his arguments in Democracy in Plural Societies. His later work has focused on the broader contrasts between majoritarian and "consensus" democracies. While Lijphart advocated consociationalism primarily for societies deeply divided along ethnic, religious, ideological, or other cleavages, he sees consensus democracy as appropriate for any society with a consensual political culture.
