Democracy: A Very Short Introduction 14.12.2012

In CIPDD resource centre you have an opportunity to find a new book "Democracy: A Very Short Introduction" by Bernard Crick. This book is a short account of the history of the doctrine and practice of democracy, from ancient Greece and Rome through the American, French, and Russian revolutions, and of the usages and practices associated with it in the modern world.
Author argues that democracy is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for good government, and that ideas of the rule of law, and of human rights, should in some situations limit democratic claims.
