"On the global playing field from which communism has so recently been ejected, democracy is the political system which appears to have won the game. But it's a hollow triumph. As Rev. Chipenda points out in this booklet, poverty, hunger, and torture still exist in some 'democratic' countries. What is the connection between democracy and poverty, voting and hunger ? And how can people around the world have more of a say in the decisions which affect their lives ? This booklet provides you with examples of people and communities who are expanding our understanding of democracy and its relationship to development". -- Intro., p. .
