Why do some nations fail while others succeed? How can we compare
the political capacity of a totalitarian regime to a democracy? Are
democracies always more efficient? The Performance of Nations
answers these key questions by providing a powerful new tool for
measuring governments' strengths and weaknesses. Allowing
researchers to look inside countries down to the local level as
well as to compare across societies and over time, the book
demonstrates convincingly that political performance is the missing
link in measuring power and military capability. This
groundbreaking work will be an essential resource for scholars,
policymakers, and institutions interested in measuring the
political capacities of nations and in knowing where foreign aid
and investment will be most effective.
