Review quote

"Bellamy argues for "democratic liberalism," a strategy of inclusiveness which strives to achieve a just and stable consensus on a constitutional framework through "negotiated compromise."" Ethics January 2002. ."
"A strength of the work is its discussion of different forms and strategies of political compromise. CHOICE, October 2000."
"This book reads in three ways: first, as a primer for those whose first interest is in political process, of the practical value of discursive practice; second, as an introduction, presumably to British student readers, to the most recent deliberative democracy phase in the life and times histories worthy of notice."
-Jay Drydyk "Recensions/Reviews
