Democracy: Volume 17, Part 1 (Social Philosophy and Policy #17) (Paperback)

The essays in this volume explore questions about democracy that are relevant to political philosophy and political theory. Some examine the difficulties involved in determining and carrying out the will of the people; some address questions relating to the kinds of influence citizens can or should have over their representatives. Other essays analyze democratic institutions, while still others examine the relationship between democracy and value pluralism, or consider the suitability of democracy as a form of government in non-Western societies.
