Roger Osborne approaches democracy as 'a continual, collective enterprise' and provides, not a definitive history, but a stimulating historical framework in which to study how individual societies have found solutions for their own unique problems. Among the democracies visited are those of ancient Athens, medieval European parliaments, the English Revolution, the American colonies and post-colonial India; Osborne also discusses the demise of democracy during the 1930s, its resurgence and the conditions for its development in present-day China.
