Product Description

Is it meanngful to call oneself a democrat? And if so, how do you interpret the word? In responding to this question, eight iconoclastic thinkers prove the rich potential of democracy, along with its critical weaknesses, & reconceive the practice to accomodate new political & cultural realities. Concentrating on the classical roots of democracy & its changing meaning over time & within different contexts, these essays uniquely defend what is left of the left-wing tradition after the fall of Soviet communism. They confront disincentives to active democratic participation that have caused voter turnout to decline in Western countries, & address electoral indifference by invoking & reviving the tradition of citizen involvement.
