This 1921 study of democracy in action, presented in two volumes, is not only an important examination of the state of the free world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it's a vital reminder, as democracy continues to struggle to fruition around the globe, of history as an ongoing story.
Volume I covers the definition and historical evolution of democracy, the theoretical foundations of democracy, democracy as it interacts with education and religion, the press in a democracy, and democracy at work in the ancient republic of Athens, in Spanish America, and in France, Switzerland, and Canada.
