How The U.S. Is Making The World Less Democratic 9

Since World War II, Western nations have been the world’s biggest proponents of democracy. Brian Klaas studies democratization and political violence as a fellow at the London School of Economics. He joins us to talk about the ways in which the U.S., Britain and other nations are actually hindering democratic efforts across the globe. His new book is called “The Despot’s Accomplice: How the West is Aiding and Abetting the Decline of Democracy” (Oxford University Press).
