London: Routledge, 2012.
v,111p. 25cm.
ISBN : 9780415505642.
321.8 ELS 137793
Democracy is an issue of major importance in theory and
practice in politics throughout the world. However,
democracy-s study and advancement has been significantly
compromised by a dichotomy between theorizing about
democracy, and empirical studies of democracy in
practice. In addition to highlighting the need for this
gap to be overcome, this book contributes to overcoming
this divide, by demonstrating a number of ways that
democracy in theory and practice can be synthesized,
deepening our understanding of the relationship between
democracy in theory and practice in the process.
Different, but related, democratic principles and
concepts are considered such as legitimacy, political
equality, deliberation, and participation. A range of
practical contexts are also investigated including multi-
level polities, deeply divided societies, whole polities,
local rural and urban areas, and a range of
democratic processes, innovations and spectacular events.

embodiment, religion, economic transformations and new
globalised Indianness as events and sites of liminality
disrupting structural aspirations.
