We asked internally for suggestions of some good books – suitable for beginners – that contain discussion about democracy and directly related topics. Below are five of our suggestions. What do you think should be on this list?
We want you to tell us about the books you think are a must-read for someone that is starting to delve into the subject… the books that have influenced the way you think, completely changed your perspective, or those that just have the cold hard facts it’s important to know. We will gather up all of the suggestions and compile a ‘Reading List for Democracy’ that will be released on our website.
