Críticas:

"A thoughtful and thought-provoking study" (Good Book Guide)

"Enjoyable and pacy" (Literary Review)

"There is much to admire in this book ...to retell the history of democracy so vividly is no mean feat. His work serves as an important reminder that the price of democratic freedom is eternal vigilance" (BBC History Magazine)

"Includes all democracies - past and present, questioning our views, how they came about, and who fought for the cause and why" (Bookseller)

"He writes lucid, accurate prose that carries heavy freights of information lightly" (A.C. Grayling Independent on Sunday)

Reseña del editor:

'Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.'

Churchill had more reason than most to rue the power of democracy, having been thrown out of office after leading Britain to victory in 1945. Democracy, when viewed from above, has always been a fickle master; from below it is a powerful but fragile friend.

Most books on democracy focus on political theory and analysis, in a futile attempt to define democracy. Of The People, By The People takes the opposite approach, telling the stories of the different democracies that have come into existence during the past two and half millennia.

From Athens to Rhaetia, Jamestown to Delhi, and Putney to Pretoria, the book shows how democratic systems are always a reflection of the culture and history of their birthplaces, and come about through seizing fleeting opportunities.

Democracy can only be understood through the fascinating and inspiring stories of the peoples who fought to bring it about.
