The Rise of Democracy

Revolution, War and Transformations in International Politics Since 1776

Christopher Hobson

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Tracks the emergence and development of popular sovereignty, democratic government, democratic peace theory and the international system
  • One of the first books to employ a conceptual history approach to international relations and international politics, allowing for a unique perspective for understanding the contemporary challenges and future uncertainties now facing democracy
  • Presents a more cautious approach that avoids the overconfidence of many liberals and the excessive pessimism of many realists
