Article: Can Democracy Cope?

Article: Can Democracy Cope?

Just published: David Runciman (Cambridge), "Can Democracy Cope?" ("The Political Quarterly", 82 [4], October-December 2011: pp. 536-45).

Quote: "The success story of democracy over the twentieth century has given way to doubts in the twenty-first, as democracies struggle to cope with difficult wars, mounting debts, climate change and the rise of China. This essay ... distinguishes three distinct views of what can go wrong with democracy ... Democratic success creates blind spots and a reluctance to tackle long-term problems."
