"Illusion and Democracy is one of the most recent and most evocative contributions to this movement in political thought. The book contributes to discussions in our field on two levels: for practitioners, it offers valuable descriptions of the broader contexts within which public debate operates; at the same time, it works on a theoretical level to expand the traditional scope of political models to incorporate explicitly rhetorical concerns. . Young grounds her discussions in clear definitions of key terms and careful accounts of competing views."-Jac
