Explores the relationship between democracy and republicanism, and its consequences. Can republican thought offer a conception of democracy that addresses the challenges it faces within contemporary political and legal theory? Here key thinkers expand upon the foundational principle of republicanism - 'freedom as non-domination' - to articulate new theoretical insights into connections between liberty, law and democratic politics, and a radically new conceptualisation of the meaning and structure of democratic institutions and procedures. Both historical and theoretical perspectives are presented, together offering an alternative to the political and legal theory of contemporary liberalism. *Features leading authors in the field of contemporary republicanism including Philip Pettit, John Ferejohn, Rainer Forst, James Bohman, Cecile Laborde, Jack N. Rakove, John P. McCormick and Richard Bellamy.
