Prompted by events in recent years in the UK and the USA, in Latin America, Russia and the Middle East, A. C. Grayling investigates why the institutions of representative democracy seem unable to sustain themselves against forces they were designed to manage. In each of five short chapters, he considers a moment in history in which the challenges we face today were first encountered, how they were overcome or not and with what consequences. Representative democracy appears to be caught between a rock and a hard place, yet it is this space that it must occupy, argues Grayling, if a civilised society, that looks after all its people, is to flourish.
