This book focuses on and examines the impact of cultural capital, political economy, social movements, and political consciousness on the potential development of substantive democracy in Botswana and Ethiopia. While explaining the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities for the development of democracy, Cultural Capital and Prospects for Democracy in Botswana and Ethiopia engages in defining democracy as a contested, open, and expanding concept through a comparative and historical examination. The book’s analysis employs interdisciplinary, multidimensional, comparative methods and critical approaches to examine the dynamic interplay among social structures, human agencies, cultural factors, and social movements. This comparative and historical study has required an examination of critical social history that looks at societal issues from the bottom up: specifically critical discourse and the particular world system approach, which deal with long-term and large-scale social changes. Cultural Capital and Prospects for Democracy in Botswana and Ethiopia will be of interest to scholars and students of African politics, political theory, and democratization.

"Orthodox strategies for socio-economic development have failed spectacularly in southern Africa. Neither the developmental state nor neoliberal reform seems able to provide a solution to Africa's problems." "Africa's Development Impasse analyses this failure and explores the potential for alternatives. Examining why Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa have been unable to overcome a debilitating colonial legacy, the book argues that it is time to rethink the political economy of development. Building on the path-breaking work of post-development theorists, Stefan Andreasson navigates a new way through the current development impasse." "This important fusion of theory with empirical case studies is essential reading for students of development politics and Africa." --Book Jacket.

Looking at how armies supportive of democracy are built, this title argues that the military is the important institution that states maintain, for without military elites who support democratic governance, democracy cannot be consolidated. It demonstrates that building democratic armies is the quintessential task of democratizing regimes.
