Should they even be allowed to recall politicians if they do not live up to their expectations? These questions and many others form the subject of this timely book.In addition to presenting an up to date review of the empirical literature, Direct Democracy provides a survey of the political philosophers who have theorised about this subject.

It is the central tenet in the book that the demand for direct democracy is a consequence of the demand for more consumer choices. Like consumers want individualised products, so voters want individualised and bespoke policies.Described by the BBC as The worlds leading expert on referendums, the author, Matt Qvortrup, draws on his experience as a political advisor to the US State Department, as well as his extensive academic knowledge of direct democracy.
