This review is from: Ruling the Void: The Hollowing of Western Democracy (Kindle Edition)
An important book for those who naively consider modern political parties to be a vehicle for transforming the aspirations of the wider of the community into actuality. Mair explains how they formed to do exactly that, but have morphed into the means of governing the population on behalf of the state. With this transformation, 'democracy', as popularly conceived, has become a practically meaningless concept.
