520    "In How Democracy Ends, David Runciman argues that we are 
       trapped in outdated twentieth-century ideas of democratic 
       failure. By fixating on coups and violence, we are 
       focusing on the wrong threats. Our societies are too 
       affluent, too elderly, and too networked to fall apart as 
       they did in the past. We need new ways of thinking the 
       unthinkable--a twenty-first-century vision of the end of 
       democracy, and whether its collapse might allow us to move
       forward to something better"--Amazon 
520    "Nothing lasts forever. At some point democracy was always
       going to pass into the annals of history. But few people 
       around today thought it would happen in their lifetimes. 
       And until very recently almost no one thought it might 
       happen right before our eyes. Now many are asking: Is this
       how democracy ends? In this surprising and 
       counterintuitive book, the eminent political philosopher 
       David Runciman argues that we are trapped in outdated 
       modes of thinking. Our expectations are shaped by past 
       stories of democracies collapsing--Europe in the 1930s, 
       Latin America in the 1970s--but we are wrong if we think 
       that history will repeat itself. Western societies are too
       affluent, too elderly, and too networked to fall apart as 
       they did in the past. We need to stop looking for tanks in
       the streets and start looking for the twenty-first-century
       symptoms. The real danger to democracy lies in our 
       increasingly decayed institutions. We are more at risk 
       from conmen than from extremists. We are more likely to 
       see our democracy hollowed out by technology than taken 
       over by tyrants. All political systems come to an end. 
       Runciman helps us think about the previously unthinkable: 
       what will democratic failure look like in the twenty-first
       century? And what will come after?"--Dust jacket
