Summary "Democracy and the Global System analyses the relationship between liberal democracy and the global system while developing a critique of liberal internationalism. Fabian Biancardi examines some of the key questions of modern politics and the major ideas of a number of significant authors and texts, including Barrington Moore Jr., Karl Polanyi, Joseph Schumpeter, Samuel Huntington and David Held. While sympathetic to the aim of spreading liberal democracy globally, he demonstrates the many tensions and contradictions involved in achieving this outcome."--BOOK JACKET
