The Logic of Democracy: Reconciling Equality, Deliberation, and Minority Protection

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Logic of Democracy examines some of the broadest questions in political science—what is democracy and how does it work—and provides a unified theory to explain them. McGann brings together the often antagonistic literature on normative political philosophy, social choice, and the empirical study of political institutions to show that it is possible to provide answers for many outstanding problems prevalent in all three.
