"Saward’s short book is a refreshing account of the broad concerns of democracy which manages to be critical without being pessimistic. It will stimulate students into asking questions rather than trying to provide answers. It provides a general background reading for anyone interested in democratic theory, presenting different routes for students to pursue further study." Keith Dowding, London School of Economics and Political Science
