The Iraqi Intervention and Democracy in Comparative Historical Perspective
EVA BELLIN draws on comparative historical analysis to explore the question can military occupation serve as the midwife to democracy? She challenges the relevance of America’s historically successful occupation of Germany and Japan to the current intervention in Iraq because of the cases’ fundamental incomparability. Broader comparison suggests that military occupation may improve the chances of democratization but overall, the outcome is largely shaped by other factors, domestic and international.
