    Insofar as it reaches beyond the academic community, it is addressed to citizens and officials in their more reflective frame of mind. Working at its cutting edges, Foundations and Frontiers of Deliberative Governance reaches from conceptual underpinnings to the key challenges faced in applications to ever-increasing ranges of problems and issues. But when those who are affected by the outcomes of collective decision-making number in the millions, legitimacy looks out of reach. Oxford University Press. The result is a conceptual landscape that locates the central debates between deliberative democrats with respect to each other as well as critics, supplemented throughout by rich and varied examples, case studies, and social scientific evidence.

    The book is organized into three main parts and a conclusion. Careful analysis of societies in transition can reveal deliberative spaces that achieve some measure of authenticity, inclusion, and effectiveness. New concepts are developed along the way: discursive legitimacy, discursive representation, systemic tests for rhetoric in democratic communication, and several forms of meta-consensus. This criticism has been made since deliberative democracy first arose in Ancient Athens. Democracy in capitalist times: ideals, limits, and struggles. Public openness of deliberation; 6.

    The precise content of reciprocity is difficult to determine in theory, but its general countenance is familiar enough in practice. Questions regarding the instantiation of Chambers of Discourse are left open; how formalized the Chamber ought to be, and what authority it ought to have in policy creation, must be relativized to the political circumstances within which the Chamber will operate. Legitimacy has been a difficult problem for deliberative democrats to address, particularly in the face of large scale democracies. How can deliberative legitimacy be achieved in large-scale societies where face-to-face deliberation is implausible? In many ways, Dryzek's account of discursive legitimacy underpins his entire approach to deliberative democracy. Rather, he offers an approach to deliberative democracy that promises to vindicate it in light of theoretical and practical challenges.
