    How Democracy Ends is a fascination and timely study of the possible circumstances which would deal a death blow to the current democratic systems. David Runciman groups his predictive scenarios into three sections: Coups, in which he examines the various types of military, civil and technocratic takeovers/5. Liberal democracy is a liberal political ideology and a form of government in which representative democracy operates under the principles of classical referred to as Western democracy, it is characterised by elections between multiple distinct political parties, a separation of powers into different branches of government, the rule of law in everyday life as part of an open.

    So no two democracies have ever gone to war with each other because the winning side tends to be seen as an autonomous nation, joined by public opinion and imbued with national pride.   The etiology of the crisis points at the very design of the regime: the patient will not take the cure, voting out any government trying to cut public spending. The Rise of the Welfare State.

    The South Asian country is now effectively a one-party state in which somewhere around half the population hates and fears the ruling party. For now, the fear predominates. But sooner or later the Awami League will stumble and the hate will be expressed in actions. It’s here where Judis’ book becomes so helpful. In The Populist Explosion Judis identifies the defining feature of populism as anti-elitism. He explains that the early 21st century populism which grew out of the financial crisis hasn’t just come from the right, but also from the left.
