Democracy Promotion as Foreign Policy: Temporal Othering in International Relations (Interventions) by Cathy Elliott
English | Nov. 28, 2016 | ISBN: 1138669725 | 215 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
This book looks at democracy promotion as a form of foreign policy. Elliott asks why democracy was seen to be the answer to the 7/7 bombings in London, and why it should be promoted not in Britain, but in Pakistan. The book provides a detailed answer to these questions, examining the logic and the modes of thinking that made such a response possible through analysis of the stories we tell about ourselves: stories about time, history, development, civilisation and the ineluctable spread of democracy.
