James Fishkin’s Unconventional Challenge to Thinking about Elections and Representation

James Fishkin’s Unconventional Challenge to Thinking about Elections and Representation <p>Abstract:</p><p>Jim Fishkin’s important book sets out a number of challenges to the conventional wisdom of political scientists and lawyers (and, for that matter, pundits and politicians) about what would count as serious “reform” of a now much-criticized system of elections and political representation within the United States and elsewhere. Drawing from both ancient Athens and the findings of contemporary political philosophy and empirical political science, Fishkin’s work is essential reading for anyone interested in the health of our polities, at home and abroad, especially as they come under ever more challenges that are calling the maintenance of liberal constitutionalism into doubt.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Good Society Penn State University Press
