The Last Vote: The Threats to Western Democracy



Democracy is so much a part of our Western lives that it is easy to think it takes care of itself.

Democracy is so much a part of our Western lives that it is easy to think it takes care of itself.

'A wake-up call . . . Coggan wants to rouse us.' Mark Mazower, Financial Times 'His argument is that we have become simultaneously complacent and cynical about our political system and if we're not careful might end up with our paradise paved.' David Aaronovitch, The Times 'A book that addresses universal questions' John Gray, New Statesman 'An admirably unexaggerated and even-handed consideration of the troubles that are besetting Western democracies.' Douglas Murray, Literary Review
