Participation and Democracy in the Twenty-First Century City, edited by J. Pearce

Contributor
Summary
Debates on participatory tend to be abstract, with references to experiences in Athens over 2000 years ago. This book uses recent experience in participatory innovations at the city level to explore the practice of participation. Taking examples from Latin America and the UK it argues the case for revitalizing democracy through participation
