While the subject of democracy has been explored by philosophers since ancient times, in the last few decades democracy has been taken for granted in the West as the political norm. The recognition of democracy as an empty concept in Western political discourse and the emergence of theories of radical democracy have renewed engagement in democratic theory and politics.

Radicalizing Democracy for the Twenty-first Century explores the radicalizing movement in democratic thought and:

• Introduces readers to the key debates in contemporary philosophical theories about democracy.

• Confronts popular assumptions about democracy.

• Provides a philosophical underpinning for the rise of radical democratic theories, movements and politics.

• Examines how radical democracy can respond to the challenges of the contemporary world.

Radicalizing Democracy for the Twenty-first Century is an important resource for students, scholars and university teachers in the field of political philosophy, political theory and international relations.
