In this attempt to facilitate the understanding of the complex terms required to comprehend and discuss democracy, the authors expect and encourage the readers to inquire further into their significance and the controversies that underlie these terms.
The ideas that surround the practice of democracy are among the most consequential of the modern world and destined only to become more so.

For example, the section titled "Concepts and Fundamental Principles of Democracy" encompasses such subjects as Democracy and Equality and the Common Good. Other sections include "The Political Processes of Democracy" and Democracy and Citizenship." An excellent resource for high school, college and adult audiences.
