Summary
After almost three decades of economic adjustment and restructuring, what have been the political consequences of structural reforms? Democratic Institutions of Undemocratic Individuals is a cogent, intriguing and a long-overdue account of the real impact of economic globalization in the developing world. In this essential book, Blind bridges an important gap in the literature attempting to straddle the yawning chasm between those scholars who argue that privatizations are good for democracy and those who maintain that they are not. This book demonstrates the differential impact of privatizations on different sectors of society. It gives a different perspective on the virtues and shortcomings of labor unions in democratization processes, and introduces fascinating comparisons between Kemalist and Peronist templates of nation-building. It yields a judicious process-tracing of Turkish and Argentine labor developments and depicts the groundbreaking interlacing of privatization and democratization in the global era
