Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lummis insists that the hope of global democracy rests on faith in our fellow human beings. The move to embrace this faith conquers cynicism and gives one hope and the ability to act."—Thomas Harrison, The Nation

"The strongest point of Radical Democracy is Lummis' finely balanced attitude of detachment and commitment that nurtures a generosity of spirit expressed in a direct and attractive prose style."—Michael A. Weinstein, Society

"This is a book that deserves to be read by economists, both faculty and students, especially those adhering to a radical political position."—Michael Keaney, Glasgow Caledonia University. Review of Radical Political Economics, Vol. 32, 2000
