Review by JD Lasica

JD Lasica has posted a review of Emergent Democracy at Smart Mobs.

Ultimately, this book explores the idea of what happens after citizens take back their democracy by blowing up the existing political process. We may be at a watershed moment. As Ratcliffe writes, "The decades ahead could mark a profound break in political history, if people understand and act on this opportunity."

In its own way, each book posits that we're living in a transitional time for democratic institutions -- and each tries to imagine something emerging that is positive and fundamentally transformative.
