Comment: Cambridge University Press 2014 hardcover with dustjacket, 318 pages. Actually new and unused. I consider the book to be in near perfect condition, but despite this it is stamped "DAMAGED" inside. I have looked carefully through the book and have no idea why it should be so stamped.

Product Description


'This landmark collection brings together the very best theoretical work on local and global governance in relation to democratic participation on the one hand and carefully reconstructed case studies on the other. It is precisely the kind of theoretical and practical work needed to understand the complex modes of governance and practices of freedom in which we are entangled today.' James Tully, University of Victoria, Canada

'This book is an important contribution to our understanding of the new forms of democratic practice which are emerging in our societies. It offers rich conceptual discussion and examples of applications in urban and environmental situations. It is not just for academics, but also provides inspiration to the many who are struggling to create more appropriately democratic polities for our futures.' Patsy Healey, School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University

'This book offers a series of first rate essays on the controversial topic of governance. By questioning conventional assumptions, its authors provide a deeper assessment of the meaning of governance as decentered political practice. They examine the inevitability of conflict under conditions of radical pluralism and explore ways of dealing with it through more agonistic practices of discursive democracy. Both theorists of governance and its sceptics have much to learn from this critical analysis.' Frank Fischer, Rutgers University

Book Description

Practices of Freedom draws upon new understandings of radical democracy and policy-making to examine how the struggles of individuals, groups and movements shape contemporary governance. Integrating theoretical contributions with detailed empirical studies, this book is essential reading for scholars and students of new approaches to governance, conflict resolution and democracy.
