Deliberative Democracy and its Discontents, Hardback Book

Deliberative Democracy and its Discontents Hardback

Edited by Jose Luis Marti, Samantha Besson

Part of the Applied Legal Philosophy series


Drawing on political, legal, national, post-national, as well as American and European perspectives, this collection of essays offers a diverse and balanced discussion of the current arguments concerning deliberative democracy.

Its contributions' focus on discontent, provide a critical assessment of the benefits of deliberation and also respond to the strongest criticisms of the idea of democratic deliberation.

The essays consider the three basic questions of why, how and where to deliberate democratically.

This book will be of value not only to political and democratic theorists, but also to legal philosophers and constitutional theorists, and all those interested in the legitimacy of decision-making in national and post-national pluralistic polities.
