Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Steven Beller’s Democracy Matters is a concise, powerful punch of a book. The author both analyzes and defends democracy at a time when the forces of plutocracy have grown in the West to a level of strength not seen since before the Great Depression. Democracy always needs defenders, and Beller steps forth ably to answer the call. The book traces the history of democratic thought and practice, then defines democracy, in particular the kind of democracy he believes works best, as well as the challenges democracy faces in today’s environment.

I found this relatively short book on democracy to be highly informative, well-argued, and, yes, inspiring. It's a great introduction to the topic, and has much to offer even to the grizzled, veteran political activist. Beller is a lively writer who will keep your attention. This is not an academic study by any means, but it is aimed at a well-read general audience. I highly recommend it.
