"Ackerman and Fishkin, two of America's most thoughtful democracy scholars, argue powerfully for making democracy deliberative and deliberation democratic. Calling for a national holiday on which citizens might engage in deliberative practices, they offer a pragmatic and appealing case for a brand of deliberation that has gone missing in America's media and polling circus that passes today for democracy." Benjamin Barber, author of Jihad v. McWorld"
