Management and Educational Consultant Steve Zolno discusses his encouraging and timely book, The Future of Democracy: Lessons from the Past and Present to Guide Us on Our Path Forward.
What is democracy and where did it come from? Is it a new development or was it always present in human society? And perhaps the most important question: what can we do to preserve and strengthen democracy among the forces that oppose it? In this book we explore trends throughout history that have brought democratic - and undemocratic - government to people wherever civilization exists. We discuss where democracy has been most, and least, successful and why.
