Tables

Here some tables showing dates of the beginning of populistic system (end of feudal system) in first column, and beginning of democratic system (end of populistic system) in second column. Third column shows how many years a country was populistic.
Some dates are presented as a ranges, because often a change of political system is a few years long process and a chain of small, gradual changes.
First table is an introduction, and shows some more important (or interesting) countries. Second and third are more complete, and show dates for many European, and Non-European countries respectively.
Corrections and updates after 2004 plus errata.
