Review Symposium on Democracy

The three books featured in this Global Perspectives review symposium – Stein Ringen’s How Democracies Live; Francis Fukuyama’s Liberalism and its Discontents; and Craig Calhoun, Dilip Gaonkar and Charles Taylor’s Degenerations of Democracy – each raise important and urgent concerns about the fate of democracy, both domestically but also in the face of the challenge autocracies pose to the liberal order worldwide. We have asked leading scholars to offer commentaries, and invited the books´ authors to respond.

  • Ewa Atanassow, Bard College
  • Craig Calhoun, Arizona State University
