In this book, Carol Gould offers a fundamental reconsideration of the theory of democracy, arguing that democratic decision-making should apply not only to politics but also to economic and social life. Professor Gould redefines traditional concepts of freedom and social equality, and proposes a principle of Equal Positive Freedom in which individual freedom and social co-operation are seen to be compatible. Reformulating basic conceptions of property, authority, economic justice and human rights, the author suggests a number of ways in which these principles could be realised in social institutions. She also discusses such issues as democratic control of technology, the nature of democratic personality, and the question of democracy in international relations.

Review:

' ... she present her case with muted words and moderate arguments, not only taking time to consider rival theories of democracy, but stating them as lucidly and attractively as their original exponents , and sometimes even more so. A more impartial and fair-minded advocate it would be hard to find ... no reader can fail to be impressed by the intellectual rigour of her presentation and the charm of her style.' Maurice Cranston, The Times Literary Supplement
