Theories of Democracy: A Critical Introduction

الغلاف الأمامي
Psychology Press, 2002 - 248 من الصفحات
This descriptive more than prescriptive journey begins with an Anglo-North American overview of the democratic terrain and then zooms in on specific democratic landscapes: liberal, classic pluralism, catallaxy (exchange economics applied to political science), participatory democracy, democratic pragmatism, deliberative democracy, and radical pluralism. Democracy's place within a globalizing world occupies the last chapter. Cunningham (philosophy, U. of Toronto) admits he leans toward democratic pragmatism as espoused in John Dewey's The Public and Its Problems (1927). Suitable for an introductory university course. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
