This is the first book to be published in this exciting new series on political philosophy. Cunningham provides a critical and clear introduction to the main contemporary approaches to democracy: participatory democracy, classic and radical pluralism, deliberative democracy, catallaxy, and others. Also discussed are theorists in the background of current democratic thought, such as Tocqueville, Mill, and Rousseau. The book includes applications of democratic theories including an extended discussion of democracy and globalisation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A very full and descriptive treatment of theories about democracy. It embraces a very wide range of position and supports each position by a great mass of reference and reading, making it, I think, a unique guide to the subject."
-Ross Harrison, University of Cambridge
"Cunningham provides a valuable service in setting out the broad parameters of the debate and the book is a useful tool that will serve as a launch pad for the purpose of deeper research.."
Vol. 37
-Michael Pepperday, University of Western Australia--anadian Journal of Political Science, 03/2004
"Frank Cunningham's latest book is a welcome addition to the literature on the theoretical and practical challenges confronting contemporary democracies. In terms of the quality, breadth, and accessibility of the discussion, "Theories of Democracy is first-rate.."
-Patrick Hayden, Victoria University of Wellington
