This book uses recent experience in participatory innovations at the city level to explore the practice of participation. Taking examples from Latin America, which are closer to participatory democracy, and the UK, which are closer to participatory governance, it argues the case for revitalizing democracy and quality of life through participation.
JENNY PEARCE is Professor of Latin American Politics, Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, UK.
