MEDIA REVIEWS

'In The Politics of Public Deliberation, Carolyn Hendriks uses her wealth of experience and insight to bridge the gap between citizen deliberation and special interest advocacy. Careful analysis of German and Australian cases leads her to call for 'strategic deliberators,' those advocates willing to provisionally follow deliberative norms in pursuit of strategic objectives. Some may view such an invitation as heretical to pure deliberation, but Hendriks has found a practical way to make deliberative forums more politically legitimate and consequential. That makes this book an essential read for anyone concerned with meaningful public engagement. '

- John Gastil, Professor and Head, Department of Communication Arts and Sciences, Pennsylvania State University, USA
