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.
Contributors to this review symposium include: Ewa Atanassow, Beverly Crawford, Michael Hechter, Jan Zielonka, Stein Ringen, and Steven E. Zipperstein.
