`Review from previous edition This is an excellent book, written with a rare combination of sophistication and clarity that makes it appropriate for courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. John Dryzek here brings to bear the mastery of the literature and the innovative ideas that have made him a leading figure in the field...the orientation Dryzek provides will be of use to students and scholars at all levels.' Professor Douglas Torgerson, Trent University, Ontario Canada
