John Dryzek is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, former Head of the Departments of Political Science at the Universities of Oregon and Melbourne and the Social and Political Theory Program at ANU, and former editor of the Australian Journal of Political Science. Working in both political theory and empirical social science, he is best known for his contributions in the areas of democratic theory and practice and environmental politics. One of the instigators of the 'deliberative turn' in democratic theory, he has published four books in this area with Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Polity Press. His work in environmental politics ranges from green political philosophy to studies of environmental discourses and movements, and he has published three books in this area. He is Australian Research Council Federation Fellow and Professor in the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the Australian National University.
Dryzek has again provided eloquent, powerful and provocative arguments which are sure to stimulate additonal interest and new thinking about the task of establishing and maintaining effective deliberative democratic governance in environments characterised by significant political, cultural, religious, moral and philosophical diversity. * Shaun P.
