Abstract

SYMPOSIUM Democratic Professionalism: Sharing Authority in Civic Life Handy Gadgets for Institutional Design Robert E. Goodin Albert W. Dzur there is a rich variety of such tools available. But while that is of This is a wonderful book.1 I say so on the book's back jacket, course an important first step, I do rather wish Vermeule had gone and I reiterate that at the start of this commentary. It's a book on to say more about interactions among these various mechathat could have only been written by someone with a lawyer's nisms, whether and when they can be deployed successfully and in eye for detail; but it's also a book that could only have been what combinations. The need for this discussion is foreshadowed written by someone with a sophisticated political philosopher's in Vermeule's introduction; and there is a short but useful discusappreciation of the deeper purposes of the standard architecsion about how submajority and absolute majority rules can be ture of democratic governance. The intersection of those sets used in tandem, the former ensuring accountability while the latter is populated about as sparsely as the Korean DMZ, and for precludes `bad accountability' to narrow sectional interests alone.4
