This wide-ranging text identifies and assesses the main conceptions of democracy from participationist to elitist. It proceeds to consider, in detail, a range of key issues in democratic theory in relation to which these conceptions can be distinguished. The second edition has been revised throughout and includes entirely new chapters on deliberative democracy and on self-determination and issues of governance at an international level in particular those associated with notions of cosmopolitan democracy.
