Dryzek: Deliberative Democracy and Beyond

If I stated a couple of weeks ago that I was overwhelmed with literature on globalisation, this week the enthusiasm skipped back to deliberation. Fortunately for me I have such a cross-field topic for the PhD that it allows me to skip from one field to another as soon as I get tired of one (and that happens a lot! - too often, I would say).

I started to read Dryzek's Deliberative Democracy and Beyond today. Up to the page 30 it is excellent!

I especially liked his critique of Habermas (1996) on the account of defending status quo and forgetting his roots in critical theory (pages 24 - 27). Go John! :)
