'This isn't a democracy,' Antonio Garc'a-Trevijano denounces within the first pages of this publication. To confront the good lie that Europe does have democratic regimes, a lie rooted in people's confounding of the liberties they take pleasure in with the political freedom that they lack, the writer builds a pragmatic concept of democracy to finish the fake concept that corruption, country crime, and public immorality are democracy's (undesirable) items and never the usual and inevitable end result of oligarchic regimes. because of an exceptional evaluate of the occasions that mark the heritage of democracy, the writer finds the stumbling blocks that, from the seventeenth century English revolution, the us' warfare of Independence, and the French Revolution, adversarial political freedom, deviating previous Europe's democratic chances towards the present events' nation. There exist vital theories of the country and of structure, yet none that may be referred to as a idea of democracy. Antonio Garc'a-Trevijano's unique concept, a contemporary synthesis of Rousseau's natural democracy and Montesquieu's political freedom, responds to eu desire for a idea of democracy as a true replacement to the corrupted events' regime that was once engendered by means of Western pragmatism in the course of the chilly War.
