£19.99

Product description

Democracy: Problems and Perspectives
Roland Axtmann
Edinburgh University Press, 2007.

Hardback; 160 x 240 mm; black boards with titles in gold on spine; vi & 266 pages. No dust jacket.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. Very minor wear to the covers.

“’Democracy: Problems and Perspectives’ provides a critical review of the scholarly and political debates about democratic thought and of arguments about democratic practice. On the basis of an interpretation of Immanuel Kant's political philosophy, the book presents democracy as a regime type in which citizens, who are united to give law, rule themselves and where such self-rule is exercised by citizens who embrace local and global patriotism. In the course of developing this idea of democracy, the book addresses issues such as human rights and their relationship to democracy; the policy of the global promotion of human rights and democracy; sovereignty and the nation-state; popular sovereignty and multicultural citizenship; and cosmopolitanism and cosmopolitan democracy. The book will stimulate controversial discussions about the varieties of democratic imaginations and visions, past and present as well as the future of democracy in the current stage of globalisation. Key Features presents a broad range of thinkers, theoretical and political positions and arguments. Clearly links theory and practice. Uses case studies to elucidate the theories discussed. Covers a broad range of theories of democracy.”
