Product description


..".Grayling is right. The thought that plutocrats and oligarchs can fix what needs mending, or do anything much about the economic inequalities that have always threatened political stability, is difficult to countenance. In fact, it seems inconceivable."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Mr. Grayling incisively surveys attempts by Western thinkers, from Plato and Aristotle to Madison and Tocqueville, to resolve what he calls the 'dilemma of democracy': the tension between the belief that power belongs ultimately to the people, and the desire for stable and humane government."
--Barton Swaim in The Wall Street Journal

"Debunks the teleological, ontological and cosmological arguments employed throughout Christendom for the literal existence of God. Those looking for a succinct analysis of these centuries old debates will appreciate Grayling's insights."----The Washington Post, "On Faith"

"In an excoriating forthcoming book, Democracy and Its Crisis, AC Grayling charts the way that American and British democracy...has become flabby, corrupt and hollowed out by narrow vested interests, big money and unrepresentative elites."----Nick Clegg in The Independent

"Grayling is a natural educator . . . He provides concise and helpful summaries of pertinent events and ideas."----The Spectator

"[A] sweeping, lively historical survey . . . Another thought-provoking winner from Grayling."----Kirkus Reviews
