Investments in education will make a critical difference for stabilizing and strengthening democracy. The book subjects generalizations about differences between rich and poor people based on findings of studies of American political behavior to tests with data from more than 35, interviews in 24 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The test results prove these generalizations wrong; poor people in the developing world are not less supportive of democracy and less involved in democratic politics than their more affluent fellow citizens. Education is the crucial variable, and the spread of education to rural areas and poorer sectors of the population has considerably widened the support base for democracy. The authors are fully aware of potential problems with the depth of this support and with the institutional safeguards for the exercise of democratic rights by the poor, but they rightfully insist that observers and practitioners alike have to take seriously the overwhelming evidence of support for democracy among the world's poor.
It is anchored in solid empirical evidence - which, unusually, comes from diverse regions of the world. Those concerned with democratic theory and development will find it impossible to ignore. Not only does it offer powerful new empirical evidence from Africa, Latin America and South Asia to reject the conventional wisdoms of modernization theory that the poor do not make good democrats, the book's analysis of the data, attention to nuances and probing questions will fundamentally change how scholars think about these issues.
