Opis: From Solidarity to Geopolitics - Tsveta Petrova

This book theorizes a mechanism underlying regime-change waves, the deliberate efforts of diffusion entrepreneurs to spread a particular regime and regime-change model across state borders. Why do only certain states and non-state actors emerge as such entrepreneurs? Why, how, and how effectively do they support regime change abroad? To answer these questions, the book studies the entrepreneurs behind the third wave of democratization, with a focus on the new eastern European democracies - members of the European Union. The study finds that it is not the strongest democracies nor the democracies trying to ensure their survival in a neighborhood of non-democracies that become the most active diffusion entrepreneurs. It is, instead, the countries where the organizers of the domestic democratic transitions build strong solidarity movements supporting the spread of democracy abroad that do. The book also draws parallels between their activism abroad and their experiences with democratization and democracy assistance at home. Advance praise: 'In this original and thought-provoking study, Tsveta Petrova demonstrates how mobilized democratic transition from below in Eastern Europe fostered the emergence of a new generation of democracy promoters in the region. In doing so, she provides new insights into transnational diffusion processes and the linkages between the foreign and domestic dimensions of democracy promotion.' Mark R. Beissinger, Henry W. Putnam Professor of Politics, Princeton University, and Director, Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies Advance praise: 'A masterful study of a critical yet understudied new area of international democracy support. With notable clarity and rigor, Petrova advances innovative, persuasive ideas about the motivations, methods, and impact of the external democracy work by Eastern European countries. A field-defining work that will stand as a benchmark on the topic for years.' Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Advance praise: 'What Tsveta Petrova carefully documents will surprise many: new democracies often do more than old ones to spread democracy internationally. What is more, Petrova's meticulous use of hundreds of interviews in Eastern Europe shows that pro-democracy activists, linked to transnational networks, do much of the work - both in directly promoting liberalism and popular rule, and in pressing their governments to do the same - and that they do it in part to entrench democracy in their own countries.' John Owen, Henry Taylor Professor of Politics, University of Virginia Advance praise: 'The emergence of Third Wave democracies as providers of democracy assistance is increasingly visible, but still has not received the scholarly attention that it merits. Tsveta Petrova's thoughtful comparative study of postcommunist Eastern Europe helps to fill this gap. It not only illuminates how and why some postcommunist states have become enthusiastic supporters of democracy beyond their borders, but also yields a number of broader insights about the enterprise of democracy promotion.' Marc F. Plattner, Editor, Journal of Democracy Advance praise: 'Tsveta Petrova has written an elegant and impressively thorough account of the democracy promotion activities of Central and Eastern European states. The book provides sophisticated explanations for these countries' evolving foreign policies and is astute in revealing the idealistic, but also geostrategic, prompts to East European democracy support. Petrova's analysis is convincingly sympathetic to these member states' efforts to further democratic norms, while also recognizing their shortcomings. The book offers illuminating background that helps shed light on European reactions to the current uncertainty in Ukraine and other Eastern Partnership countries.'
