  6. Now Available: Discourse and Democracy

    In this new study, Farrelly gives a critical examination of democracy as it is conceived and practiced in contemporary advanced liberal nations.

The central theme of the book is the paradox of pervasive reference to democracy as a legitimation of political action by liberal governments versus the converse weakening of actual democratic practice within the liberal world.
