520 1  "Thomas Carothers examines democracy aid programs relating
       to elections, political parties, governmental reform, rule
       of law, civil society, independent media, labor unions, 
       decentralization, and other elements of what he describes 
       as "the democracy template" that policy makers and aid 
       officials apply around the world." "Steering a careful 
       path between the inflated claims of aid advocates and the 
       exaggerated criticisms of their opponents, Carothers takes
       a hard look at what such programs achieve and how they can
       be improved."--Jacket.
