The authors of the chapters are leading scholars in political economy from America, Europe and Asia.

Reviews

“This volume presents important work that challenges existing theories and evidence on institutions, democracy and elections. The chapters contribute to our understanding on the persistent effect of historical institutions on current institutions and on the decisions of different economic and political actors; on how governments are forced to induce changes in institutions and how these changes may take decades to materialize; on how popular demands induce government to make institutional changes that may not be welfare enhancing.” (Maria Gallego, Journal of Economic and Social Thought, Vol. 2 (4), December, 2015)
