Summary
This book is the result of three years of research, conferences and interviews with politicians, academics, journalists, military officers, economists and ordinary citizens from Israel, Costa Rica and Botswana. These three democratic nations have survived and even thrived in regions of crisis. We hope that this study will contribute to a better understanding of the institutions and practices that constitute successful democratic systems. - p. v
