John Dunn is emeritus professor of political theory at King's College, Cambridge, and one of the founders of the "Cambridge school" of political thought.
"Of the many excellent philosophers of democracy working today,
John Dunn of Cambridge University is the one best attuned to its
paradoxes." -Christopher Caldwell, Financial Times
-- Christopher Caldwell * Fiancial Times *
"Intellectually bracing . . . Dunn-who has been for decades one of the most articulate critics in the face of democratic triumphalism-now seeks to clear a path out of the maze of our ill-founded aspirations and confusions. In Breaking Democracy's Spell, he has concentrated on how, despite all appearances, we have never really known what democratic rule is in the first place."-Thomas Meaney, Nation -- Thomas Meaney * Nation *
