Good Government : Democracy Beyond Elections, Hardback Book


Faced with government's ineptitude, people are attracted to strong leaders and bold action.

As Pierre Rosanvallon demonstrates, presidentialism may reflect the particular concerns of today, but its many precursors show that democracy has always struggled with tension between popular government and concentrated authority.
