Description - The Trouble with Democracy by Gerard Rosich

Is democracy here to stay? On one hand, the commitment to democracy is more widely shared than ever. On the other, popular will has a decreasing impact on political decisions. Existing democracies suffer from a combination of technocratic governance and populist reactions; exported democracy creates failed states and increases international tensions; global political communication has foundered with addressing urgent problems such as climate change, global social justice and economic-financial crises. This book places our political condition in its historical context, reconsiders key issues of political thought and compares current democracies across different world regions.
