Talk, reading, Q&A

Voter turnout drops to historically low levels. The membership figures of the major national parties are in a nosedive. Populist parties are more popular than they have been for decades. Is democracy at its end? In a refreshingly clear-structured and argumentative manner, this both astute and radical non-fiction book diagnoses the symptoms of democratic fatigue and at the same time shows how the lottery system could lead to a revitalization of democracy.
