Democracy brings together some of the most sophisticated thinking on democratic theory in one concise volume. Written by experts in the field, these contemporary readings are distinctively philosophical, but will appeal to students in historical, empirical, legal, or policy-oriented disciplines which deal with democratic theory. The volume covers a wide range of issues, from the significance of political equality and deliberation, to the value of diversity and reasons to vote. The essays are united by their emphasis on normative questions about justification, legitimacy, and obligation. David Estlund provides a clear introduction, which touches upon each essay and offers an overview of the issues. This collection includes a comprehensive bibliography and is fully indexed. These features help make the volume accessible to anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of democracy and its philosophical foundations.
