In this provocative book, John Burnheim argues that there is an alternative to our current political and economic structure. In a bold discussion of how and why the present system fails and what we might do to bring about genuine democracy, Burnheim offers the outline of a new kind of society, forcing us to reexamine our assumptions about the limits and possibilities of modern political systems.
