    This volume focuses on progressivism's conceptions of democracy.

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 35.00

    Political scientists have long classified systems of government as parliamentary or presidential, two-party or multiparty, and so on. But such distinctions often fail to provide useful insights.
