The Struggle for Democracy. with Patrick Watson (1989). The Artist and Political Vision. Steve Wasserman at Times Books called me in Paris not long after my article on Jihad and McWorld appeared in The Atlantic and initiated a process of persuasion and discussion that led to this book. I am grateful to him for his enthusiasm and commitment, without which I would not have written the book. The same can be said of my old friend at The Atlantic, Jack Beatty, who encouraged me in developing a provocative idea into a sustainable argument.

Almost thirty years have passed since Latin America joined democracy’s global "third wave," and not a single government has reverted to what was once the most common form of authoritarianism: military rule. Behind this laudable record, however, lurk problems that are numerous and deep, ranging from an ominous resurgence of antidemocratic and economically irresponsible populism to the fragility and unreliability of key democratic institutions.

While Watson has passed away his legacy has managed to live on through controversy. Despite portraying himself as a devout Christian and struggle veteran, Watson has been accused of leading a life far removed from this image. za reported that Watson had died under suspicious circumstances in an accident outside of OR Tambo International Airport. Watson allegedly tricked the ANC Women's League into believing they owned BOSASA when the company was formed.

Although the conflict and the bloodshed in the name of democracy have given us some our noblest moments, democracy itself remains one of the most flawed, confusing, threatened, and complex of human institutions. By examining the paradoxes and perplexities, The Struggle for Democracy provides a clear understanding of the origin and nature of democracy, including the extraordinary idea of citizenship, the tremendous achievement of free speech, and the enormous power placed in the hands of ordinary men and women. When it was first published in 1989, The Struggle for Democracy, and its attendant documentary series, were acclaimed as groundbreaking and marvelously engaging. Picking up where the first edition left off, this revised edition includes sixteen pages of full-colour photographs and commentary on such monumentally historic events as the destruction of the Berlin Wall, the infamous student demonstrations in Tiannamen Square, and the collapse of Communism in the former Soviet Union. In an inspiring new introductory chapter, Patrick Watson reflects on the challenges facing world democracy as it enters the new millennium. In a new concluding chapter, Benjamin Barber examines the future of democracy and the impact that globalization and technology will have on both emerging and established democracies.
