Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government by Corey Brettschneider

No problem of democratic theory is more formidable than how to reconcile majority rule with respect for individual rights.Democratic Rightsis an original and compelling contribution to this debate--one that will affect the course of democratic theory for years to come. Among its most provocative and ingenious arguments is its case for the illegitimacy of the death penalty and the political parity of property and welfare rights under a democratic constitution. The prose is a model of compact lucidity.--Eamonn Callan, Stanford University First-rate. In a consistently accessible style, Corey Brettschneider presents a clear, innovative argument that he sustains in an elegant and economical way throughout.--Simone Chambers, University of Toronto This ambitious book establishes its author as a scholar setting out a distinctive and credible position within liberal democratic theory. Clear and accessible, it reaches eminently reasonable conclusions on a range of policy issues, and develops a theoretical structure that can be used to apply the authors recommended middle course (between pure proceduralist democrats and nondemocratic liberals) directly to constitutional law and matters of basic justice.--Leif Wenar, University of Sheffield
