photoIs it possible for a country to have too much democracy? Fareed Zakaria, author of the recently-released "The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad," thinks so.

The author joins us to talk about his belief that liberty is threatened by an excess of democracy, both in America and abroad.

At a time when America is attempting to export democracy to the Middle East, Zakaria's conclusion raises critical questions.

Guests:

Fareed Zakaria, author of "The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad" and editor of Newsweek International.

This program aired on April 18, 2003.
