How can we confront the problems of diminished democracy, pervasive economic inequality, and persistent global poverty? Is it possible to fulfill the dual aims of deepening democratic participation and achieving economic justice, not only locally but also globally? Carol C. Gould proposes an integrative and interactive approach to the core values of democracy, justice, and human rights, looking beyond traditional politics to the social conditions that would enable us to realize these aims. Her innovative philosophical framework sheds new light on social movements across borders, the prospects for empathy and solidarity with distant others, and the problem of gender inequalities in diverse cultures, and also considers new ways in which democratic deliberation can be enhanced by online networking and extended to the institutions of global governance. Her book will be of great interest to scholars and upper-level students of political philosophy, global justice, social and political science, and gender studies.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Carol Gould demonstrates again why she is one of the world's best thinkers on interlinked questions of democracy, justice, freedom, and human rights. Her fresh interactive approach yields compelling arguments and new insights on the whole range of key questions in political philosophy, especially as they confront a globalizing world."
John Dryzek, Australian National UniversitySee more reviews
"This engaging book further develops Gould's well-known account of global democracy from her previous writings. It is a significant contribution to the global justice literature."
Kok-Chor Tan, University of Pennsylvania
"… Interactive Democracy pushes democratic theory in precisely the right direction. An increasingly global, multilayered, dynamic, networked, digital world requires an equally integrated political theory to guide its development, and Gould's book gives us such a model."
Michael Buckley, The Philosophical Quarterly
"The book is an insightful contribution to the global-justice literature and should be read together with the touchstone texts of global justice."
Brooke A. Ackerly, The Review of Politics
