Editorial Reviews

Review

Democracy in What State? is timely, represents a wide variety of thinkers, and displays the political themes that are of concern to these thinkers. This allows the reader not only to have access to a general progressive critique of current political practice but also to compare different approaches to progressive thought and action, particularly (although not exclusively) in the contemporary French scene. If I saw it on a bookstore shelf, I would undoubtedly reach for it with one hand while reaching for my wallet with the other.

(Todd May, Class of 1941 Memorial Professor of the Humanities, Clemson University)

A timely and thought-provoking collection that shows that radical thinking and the politics of dissent are more than ever necessary in order to create a different kind of politics. Perhaps what most makes this book admirable is its attempt to start the dialogue that will rattle the sacrosanct cage of liberal democratic thinking.

(Marx and Philosophy Review of Books)

The slim but hugely incisive volume, Democracy in What State?, in which well-known intellectuals articulate their radical critique of the democratic theory, its philosophical impasse and its logical conundrums, provides a convenient access to the current debate on democratic theory and its discontents.

(Muslim World Book Review 1900-01-00)

Review

Democracy in What State? is an extremely significant contribution to the critical debate on the current state of world politics and, more specifically, on the role of the term democracy in political theory and practice. It includes invited contributions and interviews with a battery of intellectuals of a rare conceptual pedigree, including some of the most well-known living European philosophers, as well as the welcome contribution of two renowned American intellectuals.

(Gabriel Rockhill, Villanova University)
