Audible Editor Reviews

For many people, democracy is often taken for granted. But this introduction to the topic from renowned social theorist David Beetham, whose lengthy résumé includes consulting on democracy with organizations like the Council of Europe, the Inter-Parliamentary Union and UNESCO, will provoke listeners to take pause and reconsider what this form of government means. Beginning with a definition and justification of democracy, this audiobook then moves on to more critical topics, such as sources of disillusionment within democracy. Voice performer Andrea Powell's smooth and nuanced narration elevates the material, making for an engrossing and thought-provoking listening experience.
