Read full description of the books:
Post-Democracy is a polemical work that goes beyond currentcomplaints about the failings of our democracy and explores thedeeper social and economic forces that account for the currentmalaise.
Colin Crouch argues that the decline of those social classes whichhad made possible an active and critical mass politics has combinedwith the rise of global capitalism to produce a self-referentialpolitical class more concerned with forging links with wealthybusiness interests than with pursuing political programmes whichmeet the concerns of ordinary people. He shows how, in somerespects, politics at the dawn of the twenty-first century returnsus to a world familiar well before the start of the twentieth, whenpolitics was a game played among elites. However, Crouch maintainsthat the experience of the twentieth century remains salient and itreminds us of possibilities for the revival of politics.
This engaging book will prove challenging to all those who claimthat advanced societies have reached a virtual best of all possibledemocratic worlds, and will be compelling reading for anyoneinterested in the shape of twenty-first-century politics.
