The History of Democracy : A Marxist Interpretation, Hardback Book

The History of Democracy : A Marxist Interpretation Hardback

Description

Democracy under neoliberalism has become tarnished, as governments become disconnected from voters and pursue policies against the interests of the people. And yet the ideal of democracy continues to inspire movements around the world. Brian Roper refreshes our understanding of democracy using a Marxist framework.

He traces the history of democracy from ancient Athens to the emergence of liberal representative and socialist participatory democracy in Europe and North America, through to the global spread of democracy during the past century. An an alternative, he offers an engaging Marxist critique of representative democracy, which has the potential to undermine the existing status quo.
