'Crossing boundaries of history, political thought, analytical reason, and empirical inquiry, a superb group of scholars powerfully illuminates the place of individual and group representation within modern democracies. Anyone interested in such fundamental subjects as elections and legislatures, mass opinion and elite leadership, or public deliberation and private interest, should attend this rich harvest.' Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University 'An excellent collection on the cutting edge of one of the most important topics in democratic theory.'
