Over the prior century, democracy unfold all over the world in turbulent waves of reform that swept throughout nationwide borders. but those cascades usually failed, cresting and rolling again into autocracy. Aftershocks offers a brand new global-oriented reason for this wavelike unfold and retreat -- not just of democracy but additionally of its twentieth-century competitors, fascism and communism.

Seva Gunitsky argues that waves of regime swap are pushed through the aftermath of cataclysmic disruptions to the worldwide order. those hegemonic shocks, marked by way of the surprising upward push and fall of significant powers, were crucial and often-neglected drivers of household reforms. although infrequent and fleeting, additionally they create an opportunity for sweeping institutional alterations -- by means of triggering army impositions, by means of exogenously moving the incentives of household actors, or by means of remodeling the very foundation of political legitimacy itself. for this reason, the evolution of recent regimes has been deeply associated with clashes between nice powers, who time and again -- and infrequently unsuccessfully -- sought to persuade, encourage, and intimidate different states into becoming a member of their camps.
