about this item

Democracy begins with classical statements on the value of democracy and follows with texts defining the concepts of freedom and autonomy, equality, representation, majority rule, markets, multiculturalism, and citizenship. It also covers feminist, conservative, and elitist critiques of democracy and contemporary issues. For this edition, the authors include new sections on the rapidly changing relations among democracy and globalization, the Internet, religion, and violence, providing a valuable introduction to standard articulations of democracy and its current concerns in the modern, interconnected, and conflict-ridden world.
