Editorial Reviews

Review

... the strength of the book lies in Parkinsons careful and thoughtful consideration of democracy and democratic roles and in the way in which he analyses space and place as an essential element in democratic performance. As such his book should be read not only by all those with an interest in legislative behaviour, urban politics, public participation, and protest politics, but also by others with a genuine interest in how our political systems work in practice. Highly recommended. Mike Goldsmith, Salford and De Montfort Universities, Public Administration Journal This is an important book. Jason Edwards, Political Studies Review [Parkinson] has developed an innovative democratic theory of public space based on collective performance. Marco Scalvini, London School of Economics

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a topic of great interest to me, and I thought this book did a nice job of summarizing the essential material. But while I liked the summaries and the analytical tone I wish the author could have been a bit more imaginative and speculative. For example, what do gatherings in public space tell us about the workings of democracy? How do the gatherings in China differ from those in the West? And will the recent spate of protests and angry demonstrations in countries across Europe be likely to have any real consequences for the concerns of those who gathered in the streets?
