Tomado de la introducción: A surprising feature of democracy in many countries is that large numbers of people, after gaining the right to choose their leaders through free and fair elections, vote for political parties with deep roots in dictatorship. Since the third wave of democratization, authoritarian successor parties (ASPs) have become prominent actors in Africa, Asia, Euro0pe and Latin America (Loxton 2015). In many countries, former authoritarian ruling parties ... and parties founded by high-level authoritarian incumbents shortly before or shortly after a transition to democracy ... have been voted back into office. Many of them grew out of regimes responsible for large-scale human rights abuses. Nevertheless, there was life after dictatorship: authoritarian successor parties remained major political actors and were frequently voted back into office. -- Tomado del Preface: This is a book about authoritarian successor parties, or parties that emerge from authoritarian regimes but that operate after a transition to democracy. In some cases, such as Poland's SdRP or Taiwans's Kuomintang (KMT), they are former "official" parties of authoritarian regimes that continue to exists after a transition to democracy.
