"This book examines why people vote in the newly consolidated democracies of Africa, Latin America, East Asia and Central and Eastern European countries. It addresses the question of how well models or theories of electoral participation, initially developed in established democracies, 'travel' to new democracies. Based on recent cross-national survey data, it provides the first systematic and comparative evaluation of this topic. Drawing on political science, sociology and psychology approaches, it reveals what is distinctive about voting in new democracies and how they compare between themselves and with more established democracies. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of political participation, public opinion, voting behaviour, electoral politics, and political parties as well as to international organizations and NGOs working in the field of democracy promotion and in emerging democracies"-- Provided by publisher
