About this product
- DescriptionThe crisis of democracy is as old as democracy itself. From the first democracy in Athens up until western democracy in the twenty-first century, criticism and complaints about the deficiencies of democracy have recurred. Pessimistic accounts typically focus on the destructive potential of these crises. This collection of essays takes an alternative approach and draws attention to the creativity inherent in these crises of democracy - the potential for renewal and adaptation. In the volume, historians, philosophers and political scientists from the Netherlands, Great Britain, Sweden and Austria tackle the three key questions prompted by this perspective: what moments of creativity can be discerned during crises of democracy in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries; how does democracy adapt during moments of crisis; and how does the tion of a democratic crisis affect political reality and vice versa?
