    ”Krystalklar læsning og et dybtgående bidrag til vores forståelse af verden i dag” – New Statesman Demokratiet er gået under mange steder rundt omkring på kloden. Vi tror, vi ved, hvordan det ser ud: Kaos råder og militæret griber ind for at genoprette orden, indtil befolkningen igen kan tiltros kontrollen. Men måske dette billede er forældet. Alle politiske systemer får en ende. I Sådan ender demokratiet adresserer David Runciman problemet stringent og med nerve og hjælper os til at tænke det hidtil utænkelige: Hvordan ser demokratiets undergang ud i det 21. århundrede? Kunne der komme noget bedre efter demokratiet? ANMELDELSER "Overbevisende, subtilt og stilfuldt udreder Runciman de paradokser og risici, demokratiet står over for, hvilket gør denne bog til en af de absolut bedste af de mange fremragende bøger, der for tiden behandler dette emne " - The Guardian "Læseværdig, tankevækkende og fyldt med fascinerende observationer om samtidig politik" - The Herald David Runciman (f. 1967) er professor i politik og leder af Department of Politics and International Studies ved Cambridge University. Han har udgivet en række bøger om politik og demokrati, senest The Confidence Trap: A History of Democracy in Crisis from World War I to the Present (2015). Han skriver om politik for London Review of Books og er vært på den ugentlige podcast Talking Politics.

    What is representation? What does it mean when a politician represents citizens in government? How can citizens be represented beyond the boundaries of the nation-state? This book answers such questions. It also explains why representation should be understood as one of the key concepts in modern politics.

    Tony Blair has often said that he wishes history to judge the great political controversies of the early twenty-first century--above all, the actions he has undertaken in alliance with George W. Bush. This book is the first attempt to fulfill that wish, using the long history of the modern state to put the events of recent years--the war on terror, the war in Iraq, the falling out between Europe and the United States--in their proper perspective. It also dissects the way that politicians like Blair and Bush have used and abused history to justify the new world order they are creating. Many books about international politics since 9/11 contend that either everything changed or nothing changed on that fateful day. This book identifies what is new about contemporary politics but also how what is new has been exploited in ways that are all too familiar. It compares recent political events with other crises in the history of modern politics--political and intellectual, ranging from seventeenth-century England to Weimar Germany--to argue that the risks of the present crisis have been exaggerated, manipulated, and misunderstood. David Runciman argues that there are three kinds of time at work in contemporary politics: news time, election time, and historical time. It is all too easy to get caught up in news time and election time, he writes. This book is about viewing the threats and challenges we face in real historical time.
