Democratic Civility examines the core requirements necessary to make democracy work. Subtly interweaving case studies and theoretical reflection. Hefner and his contributors examine the ideals, culture, development, and organization of civil democracy. Against a historical background, they consider today's challenges to democracy, asking whether international politics is destined to lead to a clash of civilizations, or whether civil and democratic ideas are indeed realizable in a multicultural world. Democratic Civility will be of interest to those in the fields of anthropology, sociology, history, political theory, and philosophy
