3rd (revised) edition.
From the cover: “The first two editions of Models of Democracy have proved immensely popular among students and specialists worldwide. In a succinct and tar-reaching analysis, David Held provides an introduction to central accounts of democracy from classical Greece to the present, and a critical discussion of what democracy should mean today.
This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to take account of significant transformations in world politics. A new chapter has been added on deliberative democracy which focuses not only on how citizen participation can be increased in politics, but also on how that participation can become more informed.
Like its predecessor, the third edition of Models of Democracy combines lucid exposition and clarity of expression with careful scholarship and originality, making it highly attractive to students and experts in the field. The third edition will prove essential reading for all those interested in politics, political theory and political philosophy.”
