"This is a book where most redundant matter has been left out, and where a simple (and therefore memorable) yet comprehensive scheme of variations across the democratic phenomenon is presented and discussed ... I find that the book makes democratic theory very accessible. It will definitely be on my bookshelf, right next to classics on the subject by, for instance, Lijphart, Held and Dahl." - Ulrik Kjaer, Local Government Studies, 38:2
"This is a valuable book ... mostly superb" - Times Literary Supplement
