Description - The Down-Deep Delight of Democracy by Mark Purcell

Arguing that the hegemony of the neoliberal/capitalist nexus must be challenged if we are to address the proliferating challenges facing our world, this inspiring book explains how democracy can revive the political fortunes of the left.

Explores issues central to the civil uprisings that swept the world in 2011, drawing profound connections between democracy and neoliberalism in an urban context
Features in-depth analysis of key political theorists such as Gramsci; Lefebvre; Ranciere; Deleuze and Guattari; and Hardt and Negri
Advocates the reframing of democracy as a personal and collective struggle to discover the best in ourselves and others
Includes empirical analysis of recent instances of collective action
