David Held, Christopher Pollitt. New Forms of Democracy explores the idea of extending democracy to new domains, a question which no single text addresses broadly. It therefore contributes to the continuing debate about this central concept of political and social theory. At a time when some vitality appears to be going out of the traditional Western liberal democracies (with fewer people joining parties and voting at elections) new growth points for political activity are simultaneously appearing.

Critics of democracy have tried to highlight democracy's inconsistencies .

Critics of democracy have tried to highlight democracy's inconsistencies, paradoxes, and limits by contrasting it with other forms of governments. The new establishment of democratic institutions, in countries where the associated practices have as yet been uncommon or deemed culturally unacceptable, can result in institutions that are not sustainable in the long term. By the median voter theorem, only a few people actually hold the balance of power in the country, and many may be unhappy with their decisions Such a system could result in a wealth disparity or racial discrimination.

In this timely and thought-provoking study, Held provides a critical reassessment of major theories of democracy from ancient Greece to the present, along with his own prescription for revitalizing contemporary democratic politics. This volume should be read and pondered by anyone interested in the future of democracy.

SIDELIGHTS: David Held was born in Britain and educated there and in France, Germany, and the United States. As a professor and visiting lecturer, he has focused on issues of democracy, globalization, and international justice. His particular interest in globalization includes the social effects of this trend and how it can be governed.

Against David Held’s idea of a ‘cosmopolitan democratic community’ it is argued that a world state could not become a relevant arena for democratic politics due to the lack of a robust civic solidarity at the global level. In this Progressive magazine article, longtime democracy activist Ben Manski reflects on the history, and possible futures, of a Green New Deal in this interview with David Cobb. When establishment media began to cover the Green New Deal, I thought of Ben Manski.

New Forms of Democracy explores the idea of extending democracy to new domains, a question which no single text addresses broadly. It therefore contributes to the continuing debate about this central concept of political and social theory.

At a time when some vitality appears to be going out of the traditional Western liberal democracies (with fewer people joining parties and voting at elections) new growth points for political activity are simultaneously appearing.

The book considers increasing the scope of democracy and applying it to the private sphere, the workplace, bureaucracies, and to military and foreign policy. It investigates new methods by which the democratic process could be conducted. This includes a discussion of electoral systems and an assessment of the possibilities of discovering popular preferences using new technological developments - such as direct democracy through mass electronic communications networks. The extent to which these ideas and proposals can be practically applied is also discussed.


New Forms of Democracy draws on examples from many countries. It is critically concerned with examining new initiatives from below as well as new developments in formal political and policy agendas. In short, in spanning both theoretical and empirical questions, this book offers a unique account of the possibilities for democracy in the twentieth century.
