Overview

Democracy is the guiding principle for fairly and peacefully making community decision at the local, provincial, and national levels of human society. In this compilation of their collected works, Falk and Strauss argue for a practical approach to now finally extending democratic decision-making to the global system. Praise: "This book is a must read for those who care about our common future." - Mike Moore, former Prime Minister of New Zealand and former Director-General, World Trade Organization. "An important contribution to contemporary debate." - Dame Rosalyn Higgins, former President, International Court of Justice. "Falk and Strauss challenge all democrats to stretch their horizons: why shouldn't we aim for a global parliament?" - Peter Singer, Princeton University. "Falk and Strauss lead the way in calling for a global parliament - a representative body that would have the scope and authority to address vital global concerns." - David Held, London School of Economics
