A Whisper to a Roar

A Whisper to a Roar, a six-part series, explores the struggle for democracy in every emerging region of the world through five national stories—Egypt, Malaysia, Ukraine, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. The stories of these countries reveal the broader themes of the inevitable abuse of power in the absence of constitutional democracy; the courage, creativity, and tenacity of democratic struggles; the importance of competitive elections, effectively monitored, for getting to democracy; and the difficulty (in Ukraine) of making democracy work.
