Democracy is under threat from a variety of forces originating in the transnational capitalist economy. Dryzek here outlines these forces, considers how democracy might be defended against them, and explores the prospects for deepening democracy. Democratic communication in civil society, social movements, and workplaces are the most likely places for revitalization of the democratic impulse. CONTENTS: 1. Is More Democracy Possible? 2. Why Capitalist Democracy Emerges Victorious. 3. Democracy versus the State. 4. Democracy versus the International System. 5. Democracy versus Economic Rationality. 6. Democracy versus Ideology. 7. The Outlook for Democracy. Bibliography Indexshow more
