Product Description

Review

"Cohen and Arato provide a wonderfully illuminating and detailed account of the civil society argument as it has developed in Europe. And then they turn that argument into a critical theory of American society or, more generally, of liberal democracy -- pointing the way toward a more effectively and pervasively democratic liberalism." Michael Walzer

First Sentence
It would not be an exaggeration to say that the debate between elite and participatory models of democracy has been going around in circles ever since Schumpeter threw down the gauntlet to the normativists in 1942. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must" for PolS Readers April 20 2007
By B. Ozcetin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An incredible task carried aout by two prominent researchers in the field. Arato and Cohen accomplished a great job in this work. The reader both will find a lucid theoretical evaluation of the concept of 'civil society' and will have a better understanding of twentieth century political philosophy. Also, the book does not only 'summarize' the basic arguments and debates about 'civil society'; but also offers a new understanding of our social and political world by their genuine model. As a researcher in the field I do really appreciate their effort and thank these two brilliant researchers for their fastidious and meticulous work.
