In this revised and fully updated edition of the No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy, Richard Swift considers the different tools people in power have used to manipulate democratic principles, such as freedom, to their advantage.

The book includes chapter-length discussions of topics such as the economic meltdown, Barack Obama, eco-democracy, democratizing the economy and democracy in the global south. It is also a guide to the rich diversity of forms of elected government and contains practical ideas for empowering today's voters around the world.

About the Author: Richard Swift was co-editor for the New Internationalist magazine from 1984 to 2007 and is based in Toronto. He has written and broadcast on questions of ecology and democracy for many years.
