Praise for What Is Democracy?
“Fascinating . . . Brilliant . . . An extended and good-looking essay, What Is Democracy? serves as a sharp reminder to pay attention to politics and to remember that the personal and the local are political.”
“What Is Democracy? indexes the manner in which democracy has become abstracted and polluted, especially by governmental capitulation to the meddling interests of free-market capitalism.”
