9780521823906: Machiavellian Democracy Hardback

Highlighting previously neglected democratic strains in Machiavelli's major writings, McCormick excavates institutions through which the common people of ancient, medieval and Renaissance republics constrained the power of wealthy citizens and public magistrates. McCormick proposes a citizen-empowering and elite-patrolling institution to be amended to the constitutions of contemporary democracies.

Review:

“McCormick’s book is something of a model for political theory that is engaged directly with problems in the world and only indirectly with texts. The aim is not so much to figure out Machiavelli, but to figure out what to think and do about a problem by drawing upon the intellectual resources to be found in Machiavelli. The result is a freshness and sensitivity to questions of institutional design that is notably lacking in, say, much of the interminable Rawlsian literature. One hopes that McCormick’s approach will become the professional norm.”
– Adrian Vermeule, Harvard Law School, The New Republic Online

“Machiavellian Democracy offers a radical interpretation of Machiavelli in the service of an equally radical critique of modern aristocratic democracy. Its bracingly original arguments will be debated fruitfully by historians of political thought and democratic theorists alike.”
—David Armitage, Harvard University

“This is a timely and politically salutary work which interrogates the history of political theory with tenacity and insight in quest of effective remedies for acute and unmistakably contemporary political ills we direly need to overcome.”
—John Dunn, University of Cambridge

“John P. McCormick’s Machiavellian Democracy is a remarkable and outstanding exercise in political theory. A work of impeccable scholarship, it shows a profound grasp of Machiavelli, his thought and his politics. The book is a significant contribution to contemporary civic republican thought and to democratic theory. McCormick’s is a dazzling achievement: fluent and thoughtful, theoretically trenchant, penetrating and insightful in its originality and power.”
—Benedetto Fontana, Baruch College, City University of New York

“McCormick resourcefully mines Machiavelli's Discourses for overlooked insights into the enduring problem of political inequality. His proposals for ‘institutional affirmative action for common citizens’ are a deft contemporary adaptation of a rich tradition in republican thought. This is first-rate political theory, both engaged and engaging.”
—Larry M. Bartels, Princeton University, author of Unequal Democracy: The Political Economy of the New Gilded Age

“This is the best book on Machiavelli in decades. John McCormick has provided a bold new reading of the great master that places his arguments at the center of contemporary debates about democracy. McCormick’s Machiavellian Democracy takes popular control deadly seriously, yet it avoids the standard objections to ‘populism.’ His account will be of great interest to Machiavelli scholars, democratic theorists, and partisans of democracy beyond the walls of the academy.”
—Ian Shapiro, Yale University, author of The Real World of Democratic Theory

"John McCormick's Machiavellian Democracy provides a welcome challenge to a series of settled assumptions in political and constitutional scholarship. The reading offered of so controversial a thinker in the history of political thought is compelling, as are the lessons McCormick’s Machiavelli offered to his readers. This is a book deserving of a wide readership."
—Gregoire C.N. Webber, London School of Economics & Political Science, Modern Law Review

Review:

'John McCormick has ... offered a bold and compelling reading of an under-appreciated democratic strain in Machiavelli's thinking by highlighting the elite-controlling and citizen-empowering aspects of democratic institutions within Machiavelli's major writings. The book is an excellent work of scholarship that is sensitive to the nuances of the tradition in which Machiavelli was writing and the settled assumptions he sought to overturn.' Theory and Event

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 238 x 158 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Intensifying economic and political inequality poses a dangerous threat to the liberty of democratic citizens. Mounting evidence suggests that economic power, not popular will, determines public policy, and that elections consistently fail to keep public officials accountable to the people. McCormick confronts this dire situation through a dramatic reinterpretation of Niccol- Machiavelli s political thought. Highlighting previously neglected democratic strains in Machiavelli s major writings, McCormick excavates institutions through which the common people of ancient, medieval and Renaissance republics constrained the power of wealthy citizens and public magistrates, and he imagines how such institutions might be revived today. It reassesses one of the central figures in the Western political canon and decisively intervenes into current debates over institutional design and democratic reform. McCormick proposes a citizen body that excludes socioeconomic and political elites and grants randomly selected common people significant veto, legislative and censure authority within government and over public officials.
