The concepts and rhetoric of democracy are once again the main focus of this volume of Redescriptions volume. The book's contributions take up: the claim of representative democracy as an elective aristocracy, the past and present of the British parliament, the media's dealing with gender in the US presidential campaign, and the reactivated debate on obligatory voting. Two articles deal with the legal language of politics, namely with the German tradition of international law and with the unproblematic concept of human rights today, and a further article looks at the politics of languages.
