Democracy is probably a never ending story although it may be discussed under different terms.
One reason for being relevant over all the time is that it is part of discourse – and discourse is surely as well about different opinions, approaches and even concepts.
Another reason is changing reality – and thus it requires to reconsider the concept in this light, for instance by looking at the meaning of newly emerging “public spaces” through electronic media, matters of globalisation and the like.
Some important issues are disclosed in the new book, edited by Peter Herrmann. The title is Democracy in Theory and Action.
The book is now available from Nova Publishers.
