In The Good Representative, Suzanne Dovi argues that democratic citizens should assess their representatives by their display of three virtues: they must be fair-minded, build critical trust, and be good gatekeepers.* This important book provides standards for evaluating the democratic credentials of representatives.* Identifies the problems with and obstacles to good democratic representation.* Argues that democratic representation, even good democratic representation, is not always desirable.* Timely and original, this book rejects the tendency to equate respect for the preferences of citizens with neutrality on the standards used in choosing their representatives.
