In this book, Michael Bratton and Nicolas van de Walle analyze the significant political reforms undertaken by some 40 out of 47 sub-Saharan countries in the early 1990s, which included the first competitive elections in a generation.

How can this wave of political liberalization be explained? Why did some countries complete a democratic transition, whereas others sustained only limited political reform or suffered authoritarian reversals? What are the long-term prospects for democracy in Africa? In the first study of its kind for sub-Saharan Africa, the authors propose systematic answers to these questions from a cross-national, comparative perspective and in the light of prevailing theories of democratization.
