Editorial Reviews

"Deliberative democracy goes from strength to strength in political theory, social science and institutional innovation, but until now had no text that unifies and summarises the field. Zsuzsanna Chappel has fulfilled that need in admirable fashion with a treatment that is accessible, intelligent and comprehensive.' - John S. Dryzek, Australian National University."
