If DEMOCRACY is as important as most people believe it is—and it is—we all need to understand better than we do why it isn’t working and how to fix it. Need I say, „Or else…“? Bringing together the most important critical work on this subject, our CRITICAL DEMOCRACY LIBRARY offers an invaluable resource to every University and High School class that deals in any way with DEMOCRACY.
TEACHERS TELL YOUR STUDENTS ABOUT IT…
STUDENTS TELL YOUR TEACHERS.
AND PASS IT ON… PASS IT ON.
