Regimes and Social Transformation

  • Barry B. Hughes


Has the proliferation and strengthening of regimes in recent decades begun to have measurable consequences, not just in the specific arena of individual regimes, but more broadly?

The charge for this chapter is to consider how we might actually measure some of the “broad consequences” of regimes.
