Product description


"[Barber] seeks to give the participatory ideal new institutional and intellectual vigor. . . .His distinctive contribution is not to develop a legislative package but to sketch a way of looking at politics from which a stronger democratic practice might emerge. . . .His approach is original and provocative."--"New York Times"

From the Inside Flap

"One of the chosen few: an enduring contribution to democratic thought."―Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University
