Rethinking democracy is imperative in the new framework of loosely bounded and competing territories, growingly culturally heterogeneous populations, mediatised and privatised context of political persuasion, and multiple and nationally-displaced decision-making processes. This book does so with great insight and comprehensiveness.

"Democracy in the Age of Globalization and Meditization" takes a fresh look on democracy.
