Against Elections: The Case for Democracy by David Van Reybrouck

Democracy is in bad health. Against Elections offers a new diagnosis - and an ancient remedy.

Fear-mongering populists, distrust in the establishment, personality contests instead of reasoned debate: these are the results of the latest elections.
