Democracy's flexibility, its commitment to equality of representation, and its recognition of the legitimacy of opposition are all positive features of political institutions. But democracy fits uneasily with many other political values and is in many respects less than equal to the demands it confronts. In these two free-standing volumes some of the world's most prominent political theorists and social scientists present original discussions of these urgent issues. Democracy's Value deals with the nature and value of democracy, particularly the tensions between it and such goods as justice, equality, efficiency, and freedom. Democracy's Edges analyzes one of democracy's most enduring problems: how to establish the boundaries of democratic polities democratically.

Book Description:

Democracy's flexibility, its commitment to equality of representation, and its recognition of the legitimacy of opposition, are all positive features of political institutions. But democracy fits uneasily with many other political values and is in many respects less than equal to the demands it confronts. In this volume (and its companion, Democracy's Value) some of the world's most prominent political theorists and social scientists present original discussions of these urgent issues. Democracy's Edges analyzes one of democracy's most enduring problems: how to establish the boundaries of democratic polities democratically.

Review:

"Democracy's Value and Democracy's Edges are companion volumes.... Judged individually, the overall quality of the essays in both of these books is very high. ...illuminating...clearly written." Ethics

"This is a stimulating collection of essays. Arguments are well-developed, and generally clearly expressed. Most essays are accompanied by comprehensive bibliographies. It's not easy reading, but it's also intellectually rewarding." Law Society Journal

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Democracy has been a flawed hegemony since the fall of communism. Its flexibility, its commitment to equality of representation, and its recognition of the legitimacy of opposition politics, are all positive features for political institutions. But democracy has many deficiencies: it is all too easily held hostage by powerful interests; it often fails to advance social justice; and it does not cope well with a number of features of the political landscape, such as political identities, boundary disputes, and environmental crises. Although democracy is valuable it fits uneasily with many other political values and is in many respects less than equal to the demands it confronts. In this volume (and its companion, Democracy s Value) some of the world s most prominent political theorists and social scientists present original discussions of these urgently vexing subjects. Democracy s Edges analyses an enduring problem: how to establish the boundaries of democratic polities democratically. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521643894
