Author: Dan Jellinek

Publisher: Bantam Press

Political party season may seem a strange time to celebrate British democracy, but Dan Jellinek is an optimist.

Amid the general climate of cynicism about party politics, he sees an appetite for active citizenship, empowered by the internet as well as the ballot box. Gazette readers may find the 19 pages devoted to the rule of law somewhat superficial – but there’s a lot that the citizen in the street will find new. Some of our elected representatives, too.
