About the book

We love democracy, but few of us can explain this affection. That is probably why dictators can pose as true democrats, and why the subdued can see despotism as the answer to their prayers. But a government of, by and for the people does not always make prudent decisions. It is contentious and unfair, and it cannot magically solve all the world’s problems – although it does keep tyrants at bay. Luckily, Svend-Erik Skaaning, democracy scholar at Aarhus University, is not afraid to speak up: We love democracy because it is less flawed than all other forms of rule.
