"World public opinion is waking up. The power that rests in the hands of ever more restricted circles is becoming increasingly contested. John Dryzek provides brilliant arguments that will enable global civil society to oppose the dominant ideology and take control over our future."
—Daniele Archibugi, Italian National Research Council; University of London
"Deliberative Global Politics is a major statement in the debates about democracy beyond the state. This accessible and theoretically sophisticated book offers a theory of discursive contestation in international public spheres as a means to achieve democracy in a world that can no longer be governed on a top-down basis."
—James Bohman, Saint Louis University
"In this thought-provoking little book, John Dryzek presents a new way of thinking about world affairs, one in which an 'engagement across discourses' can lead to deliberative democracy on a global scale ... all readers of this book will come away recognizing a range of new questions that call for rigorous and sustained consideration."
—Oran R. Young, University of California Santa Barbara
