Sanford Levinson, University of Texas School of Law
'James Fishkin and the late Peter Laslett have performed areal service by bringing together articles on deliberativedemocracy by first-rate scholars. Well balanced among advocates,skeptics, and critics, this collection significantly advances thedebate on a central concept of contemporary political theory. Aworthy addition to a distinguished series.' William A.Galston, University of Maryland <!--end--> 'This volume airs the latest ideas of some of the mostimportant thinkers in the debate over deliberative democracy. A'must-read' for anyone in the field.' JaneMansbridge, Harvard University 'Debating Deliberative Democracy is an outstandingcollection of essays about issues arising from accounts ofdemocracy that accord a central role to deliberation and publicdialogue. Fishkin and Laslett have recruited a stellar cast oftheorists, most of whom have written influentially about thesematters before. The essays have the dual merit of being valuable tothe expert and accessible to the initiate. Highlyrecommended.' Thomas A. Spragens, Jr., DukeUniversity 'This is a truly outstanding collection about an importanttopic. Almost everyone one would want to read is represented in thebook. But perhaps what is most significant is that the essays haveall been written quite recently; they absorb and build on thecopious discussion of deliberative democracy that occurredthroughout the 1990s, to the benefit of all readers.'
