English Summary/英文概要: The second edition of this pathbreaking, highly innovative comparative study in state-building by a major political scientist is a fully updated examination of the problems of making democratic government work.

Sartori begins by assessing electoral systems. He attacks the conventional wisdom that their influence cannot be predicted and also disputes the view that proportional representation is always best and will deliver ’consensus democracy’. He argues that the double-ballot formulas deserve more consideration for their ability to facilitate governability in adverse circumstances.

His comparative assessment of presidential and semi-presidential systems and the variety of formulas that are categorized, sometimes misleadingly, as parliamentary, looks at the conditions that allow a political form to perform as intended.

He concludes with a detailed proposal for a new type of government: alternating presidentialism. This meets the need for strong parliamentary control and efficient government, with safeguards against both parliamentary obstructionism and government by decree, and so could help to avoid political paralysis in Latin America, in the post-communist countries of Europe and in countries with dysfunctional parliamentary systems such as Italy and Israel.


Awards/获奖情况: "Despite the seemingly endless volume of literature on democratic institutions, no text even comes close to formulating the kind of comprehensive and critical synthesis one finds in this elegant new book by Sartori."-P. Vannicell, Los Angeles Monthly

"The last book of Giovanni Sartori is a beautiful work that ranks among his very best writings. It is very concise, for it deals only with essentials, and yet covers all the basics of his subject matter; and Sartori always takes a crystal-clear stand on the many controversies that he covers."-G. Bognetti, Il Sole/24 Ore

About the Author/作者介绍: Giovanni Sartori holds the Albert Schweitzer Chair in the Humanities at Columbia University and is the author of numerous books, including Parties and Party Systems and, more recently, The Theory of Democracy Revisited, which have been translated and published in fifteen countries. As the English second edition of this work appears, Comparative Constitutional Engineering has also been published in Brazil, Chile, Japan, Italy, Mexico and Turkey
