Democracy and Disagreement

Democracy and Disagreement

Book - 1996
Rate this:
The din and deadlock of public life in America - where insults are traded, slogans proclaimed and self-serving deals made and unmade - reveal the deep disagreement that pervades US democracy. The disagreement is not only political but also moral, as citizens and their representatives increasingly take extreme and intransigent positions. A better kind of public discussion is needed, and Amy Gutmann and Dennis Thompson provide an argument for deliberative democracy today. They develop a principled framework for opponents to come together on moral and political issues.
