Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“At the beginning of the previous century, John Dewey was concerned about the public and its problems. Dewey’s concerns, it turns out, are more relevant now than ever. One of the great strengths of Counterpublics and the State is that its contributors update the entire discussion in light of new issues and, especially, new communication technologies. I suspect this is a book Dewey would have hoped that every citizen would read.” — Eric Gander, Baruch College
