In Advancing Democracy Abroad, McFaul explains how democracy provides a more accountable system of government, greater economic prosperity, and better security compared with other systems of government. He then shows how Americans have benefited from the advance of democracy abroad in the past, and speculates about security, economic, and moral benefits for the United States from potential democratic gains around the world.
Michael A. McFaul, on leave as professor of political science at Stanford University and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, is U.S. ambassador to Russia (2012).
