5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! Heartily recommended., 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a marvellous book. It is a historical record of Democracy since the American
Revolution up to the present time. It draws on the writings of de Tocqueville, Kennard, Fukuyama
and other eminent writers/philosophers/economists and is eminently readable.
I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in where democracy finds itself
now and its future.

4.0 out of 5 stars balfour - attempting to square the circle, 7 Sep 2010
The 1917 Balfour declaration makes commitments both to the Jewish people in offering them a home in Palestine & at the same time a commitment to the indigenous Arab population, which appears at odds with the promise made to the Jews. This book explains in detail the events leading up to the Declaration & the consequences arising from it. It is a really worthwhile endeavour for anyone interested in events in the Middle East to this day.
