A Basic Bibliography
Patrick S. O'Donnell
The sections below are subject to the qualifications and liabilities inherent in such categorization. The entries under 'Democratic Praxis' are organized, by geographic regions, and are for illustrative purposes only: they by no means represent the bulk of the scholarly literature in their respective domains (or even the crème de la crème of that literature). This praxis is part of a larger bibliography that also contains a portion on theory.
