Product description

Review

Consistently illuminating ... admirably balanced ... An exploration of democracy's ills that anyone concerned with the current state of the world will benefit from reading. It is a book that addresses universal questions (John Gray New Statesman)

Coggan puts his argument together logically and methodically ... His conclusions are sensible and moderate ... It is rather a nice change to read a book which could best be described as a mild rebuke or a gentle warning. In essence, its author is getting a little Joni Mitchell about representative democracy (David Aaronovitch The Times)

[Praise for Paper Promises]: This book stands way above anything written on the present economic crisis (Nassim Taleb, author of 'The Black Swan')

Bold and confident ... This book should be taken very seriously (John Authers Financial Times)
