A powerful new understanding of citizenship, democracy and pluralism.

Chantal Mouffe is one of the most influential political theorists at work today. Her work has influenced political parties across Europe and continues to inform the direction of left politics. In this work, Mouffe argues that liberal democracy misunderstands the problems of ethnic, religious and nationalist conflicts because of its inadequate conception of politics.

Reviews

  • Evocative and challenging.

    Radical Philosophy
  • An indispensable read.

    Harvard Educational Review
  • Her work evinces an impressive political prescience...In a rare feat for a political theorist, Mouffe’s texts have inspired left parties and politicians, like Podemos and Jean-Luc Melénchon, to frame their projects as a democratic struggle against unrepresentative elites.
