Critical thinker Ian Angus argues for a radical redefinition of democracy. He wrests the concept of democracy away from the notion that a citizen's only real activity is voting to support arguments for a real participatory model. This short and accessible book looks at the roots of democratic institutions, showing how they originated in social movements and the forms of communication and interaction within those movements.
