Pre-print Presentation of Lucan Way's Book "Pluralism by Default: The Origins of Pluralism in the Former Soviet Union”

Lucan Way is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto. His research focuses on democratic transitions and the evolution of authoritarian rule in the former Soviet Union and in cross-regional perspective. His book, Pluralism by Default: Weak Autocrats and the Rise of Competitive Politics, is forthcoming with Johns Hopkins University Press. He is also known for his work on hybrid or competitive authoritarian rule. Competitive Authoritarianism: Hybrid Regimes after the Cold War (with Steven Levitsky), was published in 2010 by Cambridge University Press. He has also published articles in Comparative Politics, Journal of Democracy, Perspectives on Politics, Politics & Society, Slavic Review, Studies in Comparative and International Development, World Politics, as well as in a number of area studies journals and edited volumes. He is currently working on a book that explores why certain autocracies – such as the USSR, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea – have been so durable in the face of extreme outside pressure. “The Durability of Revolutionary Regimes” (with Steven Levitsky) examines the ways in which origins in violent revolutionary struggle generate robust authoritarian institutions. Professor Way is on the Editorial Board of Journal of Democracy.
