`This is an important and defining book about democratization in Africa focusing on the case of mali, but within a comparative African perspective. Dr. Wing has a new and exciting perspective on the themes of democracy, constitutionalism, participation, and legitimacy, and Constructing African Democracy: Mali in Transition can be a real landmark in the field of comparative democratization in Africa, and in the study of constitutional transformation in plural societies.' - Bruce magnusson, Professor of Politics, Whitman College, USA Based on extensive field work in Mali, this book explores the process by which constitutions and democratic institutions are constructed. It shows how innovative constitutional dialogues involving participation, and recognition of groups previously excluded from political decision-making may be the key to a legitimate constitution.

In this timely account, Somit and Peterson argue that humans are social primates with an innate tendency for hierarchical and authoritarian social and political structures, and that democracy requires very special 'enabling conditions' before it can be supported by a state, conditions that require decades to evolve.
