The first wave of democratization in the United States - the
removal of property and taxpaying qualifications for the right to
vote - was accompanied by the disenfranchisement of African
American men, with the political actors most supportive of the
former also the most insistent upon the latter. The United States
is not unique in this respect: other canonical cases of
democratization also saw simultaneous expansions and restrictions
of political rights, yet this pattern has never been fully detailed
or explained. Through case studies of the USA, the UK, and France,
Disenfranchising Democracy offers the first cross-national account
of the relationship between democratization and disenfranchisement.
It develops a political institutional perspective to explain their
co-occurrence, focusing on the politics of coalition-building and
the visions of political community coalitions advance in support of
their goals. Bateman sheds new light on democratization, connecting
it to the construction of citizenship and cultural identities.
