The No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy, 2nd Edition
Written by Richard Swift.
Published in Canada in association with Internationalist Publications Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2010.
|In this updated edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to
Democracy, Richard Swift explores how democracy has been constricted and
deformed by economic power-brokers and a self-serving political class from
Birmingham to Bangalore.
The book includes chapter-length discussions of topics such as the economic meltdown, Barack Obama, eco-democracy, democratizing the economy, and democracy in the Global South. It is not only a guide to the rich diversity of forms of elected government, but it also contains practical ideas for empowering today's voters around the world.
"Swift's writing is straightforward and honest, with no escaping into unnecessary abstraction or showing off with fashionable jargon. He says what he means, no more. That's how democrats should write." C. Douglas Lummis, author of Radical Democracy
