This paperback first edition was published in 2008 by Unlock Democracy. The UK's democracy and constitution had undergone a period of unprecedented change. This book provides a unique opportunity for a diverse range of major contributors to reflect on the state of our democracy, 20 years after the founding of ground-breaking campaign group Charter 88. This series of essays looks back at what has been achieved and, even more importantly, seeks to identify what needs to be done now. It offers a challenging anthology from across the political spectrum. The contributors comprise Anthony Barnett, Geoffrey Bindman, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Douglas Carswell, Louise Christian, Nick Clegg, Deborah Coles, Simon Davies, Brice Dickson, Peter Facey, Zac Goldsmith, Katharine Gundersen, Nick Herbert, Simon Hughes, John Jackson, Helena Kennedy, Helen Margetts, Bhikhu Parekh, Trevor Phillips, Alexandra Runswick, Helen Shaw, Trevor Smith, Alan Trench and Stuart Weir. The book also includes an archive of Charter 88 materials. This volume is in a good, used condition. There is a scuff on the back cover and a mark on the first page but otherwise this volume is clean and bright.
